This bill, requested by the Department of Environmental Quality, would improve the process by which the department reviews and enforces reclamation requirements for gravel pits. It would clarify what gravel pit operators are required to submit to the agency and tighten up the time frames for review of reclamation plans which will save the state money and result in speedier reclamation which is good for landowners who have gravel pits on their property and good for the environment. SB 66 will be heard in the Senate Natural Resources Committee soon.
