Final Environmental Assessment
Newton Reservoir Mineral Extraction

Back to Environmental Documents

This document is a final environmental assessment of the potential environmental consequences of the Bureau of Reclamation providing right-of-way access and right-of-use permitting for gravel extraction east of Newton Reservoir on the northwest flank of Little Mountain in Cache County, Utah. The preparation of this document is in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Council on Environmental Quality and Department of the Interior regulations implementing NEPA. Zeotech Corporation has requested that Reclamation authorize them to construct and use an access/haul road extending approximately one-half mile from County Road (5800 West) to Zeotech’s property boundary to the east. Furthermore, Zeotech Corporation is proposing some gravel resource extraction to occur on Reclamation land, however, the majority of the excavation will occur on privately owned land adjacent to the Reclamation property boundary.
