Permit(s) Applied for:
Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is Located:
Glenville, Schenectady County
Charlton Suburban Services, LTD., lessees/operators of the Smith Sand Pit, a surface unconsolidated sand mine in operation since the early 1900's, propose the expansion of the Life of Mine (LOM) boundary. The mine has a current Article 23, title 27 of the Environmental Conservation Law (Mined Land Reclamation) permit to operate a 10 acre LOM and the expansion would add an additional 6.5 +/- acres of adjoining lands to the LOM. The modification is requested as the current LOM area has provided construction materials for over 20 years and is nearing depletion. The expansion will allow mining activities to continue without changes to the existing operations or production at the site as currently permitted. The current LOM and proposed expansion area are entirely on the lands owned by Mr. Norman Smith, located on the West side of North Road, approximately 2000 feet south west of its intersection with Potter Road, in the Town of Glenville, Schenectady County.
