Notice of spraying St. Louis River Trail pavement vegetation and County Road Ditches 27, 116,117,118,119,151,152,696

Carlton County Transportation will be spraying herbicides on vegetation growing through the pavement of the St. Louis River bike/pedestrian trail from Highway 210 East of the Four Seasons Sports Complex in Carlton North to the Park and Ride lot in Scanlon. In some areas the vegetation has caused severe pavement damage, making it difficult for people to use the trail. Carlton County will also be spraying the ditches on County Roads 27, 116,117,118,119,151,152 and 696.

Vegetation management with selective herbicides controls brush and yet allows grasses to grow unharmed.  Herbicides used have been fully tested and are approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Minnesota Department of Agriculture.

Anyone with concerns or questions regarding the use of herbicides along the St. Louis River Trail and the County Roads listed above can contact Carlton County Transportation; 1630 County Rd 61; Carlton MN  55718 Phone (218) 384-9150 email address: Transportation@co.carlton.mn.us.

NOTICE OF APPLICATION - PERMIT TO MINE 

In accordance with Minnesota’s Mineland Reclamation Act (M.S. 93.44-93.51) and the Minnesota Peat Mineland Reclamation Rules Chapter 6131, notice is hereby given that Premier Horticulture, Inc. (Premier), 1320 Kalli Rd. Cromwell, MN has applied for a Permit to Mine. 

Premier proposes to develop the Wright Bog, located in the Carlton County, by constructing a new horticultural peat harvesting facility located approximately 3 miles west of their existing Black Lake Bog (Peatrex) horticultural peat harvesting operation. The project would secure a continuous supply of Sphagnum moss peat to its existing processing plant located west of Cromwell in Carlton County, Minnesota. The proposed development areas would be cleared and ditched, with drainage water conveyed through the ditch system, sedimentation basins, and the north drainage ditch eventually discharging into the Little Tamarack River. The company plans to develop a total of 316.4 acres that includes 255.2 acres of peat harvesting areas, 5.7 acres for a drainage ditch north of the site, 5.1 acres for sedimentation basins, 2.7 acres for access roads within the harvesting area, 2.4 acres for an access road to the harvesting area, 15.6 acres for peat stockpiles within the harvest area, 2.0 acres for an equipment yard, and 28.0 acres for a restoration donor site.  Storm water will be treated through 4 sediment basins to remove suspended solids from the discharge water.

The development would occur on both private and state administered land (i.e. state lease). Production on the proposed site is estimated to begin in 2021 and end in 2046. Progressive restoration of the site will occur between 2033 and 2049. The permit application is on file and may be reviewed by appointment at the Premier Horticulture, Inc. office in Cromwell, MN, or at the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, Division of Lands and Minerals office in Hibbing and in St. Paul at the addresses shown below.
