If you operate a small sand pit or gravel pit you are not exempt from state and federal reclamation bond requirements.  Reclamation planning and bonding is not just for the “big guys”.  Even very small sand and gravel pit operations are responsible for having an appropriate environmental repair plan.  A sand pit reclamation bond or gravel pit reclamation bond must guarantee topsoil salvage and replacement, recontouring, revegetation, slope stability, air/water/stream protection, geochemical and acid mine drainage considerations, public health and safety, wildlife habitat restoration, and aesthetic impacts.  Reclamation bonds are typically unattractive to surety companies because they contain very long term, non-cancelable terms. Offering these onerous obligations to very small operators is difficult however  Surety One, Inc., the nation’s leader in surety is a bonding is YOUR resource for any operation requiring reclamation bonding.
