Reclaiming the Sierra

CA Department of Conservation

DOC_Bear_Logo_ColorCreated in 1991 to administer the Surface Mining and Reclamation Act of 1975 (SMARA), the California Department of Conservation Office of Mine Reclamation (OMR) provides assistance to cities, counties, state agencies and mine operators for reclamation planning and promotes cost-effective reclamation. OMR strives to reclaim mined lands to a beneficial end-use through the implementation of SMARA and minimize residual hazards to public health and safety through the Abandoned Mine Lands Program.  We are pleased to announce that OMR will be a Gold Level sponsor of Reclaiming the Sierra 2015.
