Quarry Rehab program offers resources for applications

The Natural Resources and Northern Development Department is providing industry and landowners a power point presentation that walks users through the application process for the quarry rehabilitation program.

The power point was presented in a webinar the department hosted May 26.

Applicants can review the step-by-step application power point here.

Further, the department has provided responses to questions that arose during the May 26 presentation. The application guide and Q&A can be seen here.

“We very much appreciate the discussions with the province regarding the process for landowners and aggregate producers looking to rehabilitate spent quarries and pits,” MHCA President Chris Lorenc said.

“This program is vital to the management of Manitoba’s aggregate resources and to the industry’s efforts to ensure that pits and quarries, once they are spent, are returned to a more natural land form, or to a purpose the host municipality or community can enjoy.”

Questions can be sent to quarryrehab@gov.mb.ca.

The Manitoba government has opened a third intake for the Quarry Rehabilitation on Private and Municipal Land Program.

Eligible project activities include sloping and grading, moving oversized boulders and other materials, spreading overburden and topsoil, and purchasing seed to cover graded areas.

Applications will be open until June 15 and successful grant recipients will be notified in mid-July.  Approved projects must be completed by Jan. 31, 2023.
