Description:
Abstract:
Crushed stone and sand and gravel are the main types of natural aggregate used in the United States. Aggregate is used in nearly all residential, commercial, and industrial building construction, and in most public works projects including roads and highways, bridges, railroad and light rail beds, airports, water and sewer systems, and tunnels. Much of the infrastructure built during the 1950s and 1960s has deteriorated to a point that requires extensive repair or replacement. All this construction requires enormous amounts of aggregate. In Colorado, for example, nearly 45 million tons of aggregate, or about 12 tons per person, were produced during 1994.
Purpose:
Planners and other decision makers responsible for resource management should find this map useful in regional planning and land use management. Because statutory regulations, technological capabilities, available funding, and land-use priorities vary from place to place and can be expected to change with time, this map is designed to provide a resource data base that will be useful over the years. This map is in digital format and can be used with other digital data sets, according to the specific needs of a particular planning issue. As planning criteria change, the selection of pertinent resource characteristics can be adjusted to meet the changing needs.
