FR1923G001/09 – LAUREL SAND & GRAVEL, INC., P.O. Box 850, Laurel, Maryland 20725 has applied to increase their existing water appropriation and use permit from 300,000 gallons of groundwater per day (gpd) and an average of 2,000,000 gpd in the month of maximum use to 1.7 million gallons per day (mgd) and 3.8 mgd, respectively. Water is to be taken from the Legore Quarry sump in the Grove Limestone for quarry dewatering, dust control, equipment and product washing.

The proposed increased allocations are based on reported use and the projected amount of water needed over the next 12-year permit period. The mining permit requires the permittee to replace disrupted water supplies located within the zone of influence around the quarry due to water withdrawals associated with the quarry operation. The Water Appropriation and Use Permit will also have a condition requiring replacement of water supplies of property owners if withdrawals from the quarry are known to have caused impacts to their water supplies. No addition drawdowns are expected from these allocations since the water levels in the quarry will be maintained at the current levels.
