Leviathan Mine Project
Leviathan Mine is an inactive sulfur mine that the State of California acquired in 1984. The State acquired the site in order to cleanup and abate water quality problems caused by historic mining. Jurisdiction over the site rests with the State Water Resource Control Board, which in turn has delegated jurisdiction over pollution abatement activities to the Lahontan Regional Water Quality Control Board. The location of the mine is in Alpine County, California, approximately five miles east of Markleeville, California.
