Description

Ellwood Quarry is an existing mining facility that produces sand through excavation of a Vaqueros Formation outcrop located about one-half mile north of Cathedral Oaks Road, just west of Goleta. Other than size sorting, no processing of the produced sand takes place on the site. All support structures, access roads and other necessary facilities are in place and currently in use. These facilities include above-ground fuel tanks, an office trailer with a toilet, truck scale, shop building, and water system. Eight full-time employees are involved in the mining operation. Ellwood Quarry occupies a small portion of the 191-acre parcel and is located in the rural area north of the urban area of Goleta. The Quarry is located on the hillside that forms the western boundary of Ellwood Canyon.
