ENB - Region 8 Notices

Negative Declaration

Genesee County - The Town of Alexander Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed 2007 Amendment to the Town of Alexander Zoning Law will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the adoption of a comprehensive local law regulating the development of Wind Tower Installations which is necessary to protect the interests of the town and its residents. This local law establishes a permissive and discretionary framework for the establishment of wind energy conversion facilities, adds various definitions and amends fence requirements. The project is located town-wide in the Town of Alexander, New York.

Notice of Acceptance of Final EIS

Genesee County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Hanson Aggregates New York Inc., Stafford Quarry. The action involves the modification of the applicant's existing permit for a 136.7 acre limestone quarry on a 377.4 acre parcel. The modification consists of a request to expand the current 136.7 acre Life-of-Mine to approximately 259.2 acres. The mine will continue to operate as a traditional surface excavation of dolostone by drilling, blasting, and processing with mechanical equipment standard for quarry operations. Mining will occur below the water table and includes dewatering. No significant operational modifications are proposed for this mining activity as a part of this application. Final reclamation will restore the site to a 201 (+/-) acre open water recreational pond ranging in depth from 40 to 60 feet. At the expected surface water elevation of the lake, a sloped bench will provide a shoal area around the perimeter of the lake. Copies of the Final EIS are available for review at NYS DEC Region 8 office in Avon, NY and at the Town of Stafford's Town Hall, 8903 Route 237, Stafford, NY. The project is located on US Route 5, just west of the intersection of US Route 237 and approximately one-half mile west of the hamlet of Stafford. The facility is located in the Town of Stafford, New York.
