Mining Reclamation Program -
In 2001, Walworth County Board of
Supervisors adopted a Nonmetallic Mining Reclamation Ordinance. This
ordinance requires all operators of active nonmetallic mining sites
have a Walworth County - approved Reclamation Plan, Permit and
Financial Assurance. The Reclamation Plan must comply with the State
Standards specified in Chapter 135 of the Administrative Code.
Walworth County currently has 26 nonmetallic
mining sites covering nearly 900 active acres.
