Dear Construction Subscriber,

The California Legislature enacted the Surface Mining and Reclamation Act
of 1975 (SMARA) to address the need for a continuing supply of mineral
resources and to prevent or minimize the negative impacts of surface mining
to public health, property, and the environment. The act applies to anyone
engaged in California surface mining operations that disturb more than one
acre or remove more than 1,000 cubic yards of material. Please see
Construction Policy Bulletin 11-5, "Revised Guidance for Surface Mining and
Reclamation Act," for additional information. We have posted it  on our
construction website:
