Project Description: The action involves a new 35 acre commercial sand and gravel extraction (Area B) to be operated in conjunction with a nearby commercial sand, gravel and mineral extraction (Area A) which has a 49 acre life of mine area as approved by previous Agency Permit 2004-0174. Total reserves of sand, gravel and stone for these extractions are approximately 3.5 million cubic yards. The overall mining operation is projected to continue for another 20 to 25 years. Annual production, days of operation, equipment to be used, water usage, and daily truck trips are to remain as presently permitted. These are described as follows: An average of 160,000 cubic yards and a maximum of 200,000 cubic yards of sand, gravel and stone products are removed from the commercial sand and gravel and mineral extractions annually. Weekday hours of mining and trucking operations are proposed annually from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. from December through May, from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. from June though August, and from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. from September through November and approximately one-half of all Saturdays during the spring from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and approximately one-half of all Saturdays during summer and fall from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. No operations on Sundays are proposed. Sand, gravel and stone will be excavated by use of front end loaders and a haul truck. Material processing is to include use of a jaw crusher, two cone crushers, a double deck screen, a triple deck screen, a sand classifier and interconnecting conveyors. Below water excavation of sand and gravel, which will only occur in Area A, will involve use of draglines, dredges and/or long-reach hydraulic excavators. An on-site truck scale and office building will continue to be used. Water will continue to be pumped from Bacon Pond on an intermittent basis at a rate of between 450 and 550 gallons per minute for material processing (washing). It is estimated that an average of 65 loaded trucks and maximum of 80 loaded trucks will depart the project site on a daily basis. All trucking of material to off-site locations will be directed onto NYS Route 149 via a proposed new access road and no longer onto Pattens Mills Road.
