Fresno County Sups give approval for Carmelita mine project

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

The Fresno County Board of Supervisors agreed to allow the construction of a new gravel mine near Reedley.

The Carmelita mine project will be located on nearly one-thousand acres of orchards at Reed Avenue and Annadale.

The approval came after a daylong hearing, where supervisors heard from residents concerned about air pollution, water use and truck traffic.

The supervisors did impose some conditions on the plant, including a greater setback from the highway and additional landscaping.
