The suggestions presented to Representative Koehler from the visiting CAM members.

  • The notification process needs to change as the newspaper notification is outdated. Suggestions to improve the notification process could be the use TV/radio announcements, mail, door to door flyers, or signs posted on site.
  • The company’s water modeling should be approved by an objective party.
  • The Reclamation Commission should have a balanced member composition. The applicant should not be allowed to participate in the appeal hearing.
  • Create an ombudsperson office, independent of government or business, to advise and guide residents and organizations in understanding the mining permit process.
  • When dewatering occurs the company should compensate for ALL expenses related to diminished or loss of water.
  • Legislation is needed to protect individual water rights and keep mining companies far enough from established communities to prevent dewatering.

JULY 29, 2019: ES&G receives letter from OEPA requesting information to determine if the underground waters from the mining properties are feeding the two category three (the best type of wetlands and deserving of protection) along Garrison Road. They also request a stream study be completed to determine if the mining will affect the flow in the Mud Run Creek and its unnamed tributaries.

JULY 17, 2019: The Division of Surface Water (DSW) receives the requested review from The Division of Drinking and Ground Waters (DDAGW) concerning the revised document entitled, Workplan for Hydrogeologic lnvestigation, Culbertson Fen, Enon Sand and Gravel, dated June 13, 2019, submitted by Eagon and Associates on behalf of Enon Sand and Gravel.

ES&G sends revised work plan to OEPA “WORK PLAN FOR HYDROGEOLOGIC INVESTIGATION (Revised June 13, 2019) CULBERTSON FEN.”

The Culbertson fen, a wetland sustained by underground water sources, is along Garrison Road. It is 1.5+ acres. Another one along Garrison Road is the Vanderglas fen and is 4.8+ acres. These are 2 special important and valuable community resources we must protect. Enon Sand & Gravel must not be allowed to disturb these fragile and unique ecosystems.

Sunset falls on the mining property directly adjacent to the Culbertson Fen. The Vanderglas Fen is just around the corner. Read the latest EPA letter sent to the Jurgensen Company, Enon Sand and Gravel’s tri-state parent company. REMEMBER, JURGENSEN IS PLANNING TO BLAST THE LIMESTONE UNDER THIS FIELD IF EPA PERMITS CAN BE SECURED AND CONDITIONAL USE PERMITS ARE GRANTED UNDER THE BOARD OF ZONING APPEALS.
