The Tarmac Mine, approximate elevation 6-7 feet on the Gulf side and 16-17 feet on the east end, sits within the hurricane-surge reach and evacuation zone of a Category 2 and higher storm. Fifty-Two major hurricanes or storms have directly impacted upon Levy County, an average of 3.21 per year, from 1842 through 2009.
The danger lies in the probable displacement from storm surge of water-borne quarry pit impurities and other mine related activities, affecting the coastal waters of the Gulf, Waccassassa Bay fishing and the aquaculture of Cedar Key.
