§ 3550.5. San Gabriel River, Eaton Wash, Devils Gate, and Palos Verdes Areas of the San Gabriel Valley Region, Los Angeles County.
A set of maps identifying the exact locations of the designated areas, entitled “Updated Designation of Regionally Significant Construction Resources in the Northern San Gabriel Production-Consumption Regions, Los Angeles County, California, 2013” and “Updated Designation of Regionally Significant Construction Aggregate Resources in the Eaton Wash, Devils Gate Reservoir, and Palos Verdes Areas, San Gabriel Production-Consumption Region, Los Angeles County, California, 2013” is incorporated by reference into this regulation. The areas for designation or termination of designation are shown on the two Plates. These maps are available from the State Mining and Geology Board's office in Sacramento.
The construction aggregate deposits in the following areas have been designated as being of regional significance:
Sector A--Offstream and instream deposits of the San Gabriel River below Morris Dam near Azusa.
Sector B--Instream deposit consisting of the flood control channel of the San Gabriel River upstream of Foothill Boulevard near Azusa.

Sector C (42 acres): There are two areas that have become incompatible with mining. Thirty-six million tons of resources have been lost to urbanization.
Sector D (391 acres): There are eleven areas that are now incompatible with mining. Fifty-two million tons of resources have been lost to urbanization and 64 million tons of resources have been lost because of landfill operations.
Sector E (422 acres): There are six areas that have become incompatible with mining. Fourteen million tons of resources have been lost to urbanization, and 179 million tons of resources have been lost to landfill operations.
