The Central Stone Company requests reauthorization to excavate accumulated sediment adjacent to their existing Florence Quarry barge loading terminal.  Up to 2,500 cubic yards of accumulated sediment would be excavated periodically from an approximate 80-feet-wide by 400-feet-long area to ensure uninterrupted barge access.  The excavated material would be trucked to an upland disposal area within the applicant’s existing quarry.  The project area is located in the Northeast 1/4 of Section 10, Township 5 South, Range 2 West, near Pittsfield, in Pike County, Illinois.  Excavation would occur near the right descending bank of the Illinois River, at approximate river mile 57.3.  Written comments must be received on or before December 26, 2018.
