Positive Declaration and Public Scoping

Livingston County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Valley Sand and Gravel, Inc., Avon Pit, River Road may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. Written comments on the draft scope will be accepted October 20, 2008. A public scoping session will be held on October 8, 2008 at 7:00 p.m. at the Caledonia Town Hall, 3109 Main Street, Caledonia, New York. The action involves the expansion of an existing, permitted 68 acre sand and gravel mine to include an additional 120 acres. Current mining operations will continue unchanged. Mining will result in the removal of approximately 10 million tons of aggregate materials in three phases over the proposed operating life of the expansion. Processing currently includes crushing, washing and screening and will likely continue in the existing mine where it has historically been located. In the future, processing equipment may be moved into the expansion area. Wash water will remain on a closed circuit system with no discharge off site. The site will be reclaimed by grading, replacement of topsoil, revegetating upland areas with an approved seed mix, and creation of a water-based wildlife area including a large pond. The project is located approximately 2 miles west of Avon, New York. Route 5 borders the property on the north and River Road to the east in the Town of Caledonia, New York.
