Sloan Hills Gravel Pit

Sloan Hills Gravel Pit location mapIntroduction
In June 2007, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) began the process to evaluate two proposals for gravel pits in the Sloan Hills east of Interstate 15 and south of the Sloan exit.  The proposals were submitted by competing companies, CEMEX (previously Rinker Materials) and Service Rock.

The proposed site lies on Federally-owned land completely outside the City of Henderson’s city limits in a County “island.”  Click on the map to enlarge image.

Although the City of Henderson has no jurisdiction over the land in question, the City continues to monitor the situation and will pursue mitigation measures should the gravel pit be approved.  However, the City is unable to oppose the proposal due to a settlement agreement from 2001.

Informational Presentation
The following PowerPoint presentation, which was given to Council at the December 15, 2009 City Council meeting, provides additional information regarding the background of the proposed gravel pit, the status of the EIS, and the City’s legal standing.
