Aggregate Mining - Permitting  

CEQA environmental review of proposed mining projects can encounter a range of potential issues that the typical CEQA planner is not well-equipped to manage: overly steep mining slopes, hard rock blasting, excavating in groundwater/groundwater dewatering, and water use (in the era of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act [SGMA]).  These are issue better managed by a geologist, hydrogeologist, or engineer. At Baseline, our mining CEQA project managers are geologists, hydrogeologists, and/or engineers with decades of experience managing EIR and Initial Study/MNDs for mining projects. A partial list of the mining projects we’ve managed is presented below:
