Valley Aggregates Environmental Assessment Worksheet (PDF)

Valley Paving, Inc. (VPI) operates an existing sand and gravel mine located in Monticello Township, Wright County, MN. VPI is proposing to expand the existing mine by an additional 77 acres. The expansion is a result of a depletion of usable aggregate at the existing mining site. The mining operation(s) would move to the new expansion area and VPI would start reclamation of the existing Site. Operation would primarily include excavation of native sand and gravel resources, and processing of the materials to produce aggregate products for use in area construction projects.
