Amended Negative Declaration
Steuben County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc. - Presho Pit will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the construction and operation of a new 68.25 acre surface sand and gravel mine on a 175.17 acre parcel in the Town of Lindley, on Presho Lindley Road approximately 1 mile southeast of Presho. Mining is not proposed for below the local water table, except for the excavation of a half acre pond as a source for process wash water. Excavation by mechanical equipment is proposed to remove approximately 5 million cubic yards of sand and gravel over the estimated 15 year operational life of the mine. Material will be processed on site by a crushing, screening, and washing plant. Final reclamation will restore the site to graded and revegetated meadow and open space, with the water supply pond filled in. This Amended Negative Declaration supercedes the Negative Declaration for this project dated June 21, 2007. During an extended public comment period including a Legislative Public Hearing, comments received from the public, local government, and the County DPW led the Department to conclude that additional assessment of the project's effects should be undertaken. Comments raised concerns over traffic, traffic safety, noise, dust, and community character, and cited increased costs for road maintenance as a result of the project. The Department requested additional information from the applicant and received additional details regarding traffic, traffic safety, and noise, in October and December 2007 submissions. Department staff determined these concerns were adequately addressed in the additional submissions including changes to the project presented in a revised mining plan submitted January 23, 2008 and a letter dated January 24, 2008. The project is located at 1730 Presho Lindley Road (approximately) in the Town of Lindley, New York.
