Reclamation

Land reclamation is the process of restoring land to its next land use. Once extraction is complete, land can be restored to agricultural use, park use, or any other use that might be applicable. The future use of the extraction area is governed by federal, provincial and municpal regulations. The applicable regulations often vary from site to site, depending on the time of initial permitting and the location of each specific parcel of land.

 

Below is a presentation of our most recent reclamation activity.
