—Harshman Construction, LLC of Cedar Point, Kansas, Earns Award
TOPKEA – Harshman Construction, LLC of Cedar Point, Kansas, received the 2012 Governor’s Mined Land Reclamation Award for their reclamation work at their Finerty Quarry.
This award is presented to a company that demonstrated excellence in implementing mined land reclamation and conveying a positive image of mining in Kansas. The award was presented at the Kansas Aggregate Producers Association meeting in Overland Park January 18, 2013.
“Harshman Construction, LLC exceeded state reclamation requirements by reclaiming 20 acres at the site that state law did not require to be reclaimed,” said Scott Carlson, Kansas mined land reclamation program manager.
The reclaimed area covers 40 acres in Coffey County. The 40 acres were shaped, seeded and two ponds constructed. The land is now a productive livestock pasture.
Harshman Construction, LLC operates 17 quarry locations in Southeast Kansas and does custom rock crushing. The extraction of aggregate materials from the earth are processed and then sold to the local construction industry, city and county municipalities.
