WANTED - Locations To Place Fill In Eastern Kentucky

DAML is seeking locations in eastern Kentucky to place fill material. DAML reclamation projects often generate large quantities of earth and rock suitable for fill material. DAML will generate, deliver, place, grade and revegetate the material for the landowner free of charge. All work is supervised by DAML engineering personnel who will also obtain any necessary permits. Suitable locations are previously disturbed areas, approximately one acre or larger, relatively level, outside the floodplain and void of trees. Previously mined areas are ideal. Contact Robert Cammack or Samantha Hall at 502-564-2141 if you are interested.
