Negative Declaration

Cattaraugus County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed I A Construction Corporation - Portville Sand and Gravel Expansion will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the excavation of approximately 1,482,103 tons of topsoil, sand and gravel from a 27.7 acre expansion of an existing 17.9 acre surface unconsolidated mine over an estimated 8 years. The proposed expansion involves increasing an existing 17.9 acre mined lake to a surface area of 39.6 acres with six acres adjacent acres of shoreline and upland area. Material in the area of the lake expansion is proposed to be mined approximately 43 feet below the seasonal high water table. All material is to be hauled to an existing permitted processing area, with the exception of the topsoil and overburden which is to utilized in reclamation along the shoreline and benches of the excavated areas. After the mining operation is completed, it is intended that the site be reclaimed as a natural wildlife sanctuary. The expansion is located approximately 1,500 feet south and west of Barberton Road, and is immediately east of the Norfolk Southern Railroad which is east of NYS Route 305 in the Town of Portville, New York.
