The Community Planning Division of The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, Prince George’s County Planning Department, conducted this study in response to an inquiry by the Prince George’s County Council on the status of the sand and gravel extraction industry and opportunities for adaptive reuse of closed sand and gravel mines. This report reflects information collected in literature searches, a geographic information system (GIS) survey of sand and gravel extraction sites, site visits to operating and closed sand and gravel mines, and interviews of state, County, and mining industry officials. This study describes sand and gravel mining in Prince George’s County and its impacts, and makes recommendations for its future, including how closed sand and gravel mines may be reused.
