ENB - Region 6 Notices 10/08/2008
Jefferson County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed New Mining Operations for G & J Trucking will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the development and operation a 55 acre topsoil mine within a 198 acre parcel southwest of Gould Corners. The mine is intended to operate as a traditional surface extraction of the Vergennes silty clay load, Galway silt load, and Covington silty clay which are the predominate soil types on the site. Mining is proposed for above the local water table. Excavation will be done by mechanical equipment. Mining is proposed to remove approximately 4 inches of topsoil from a 5 acre phase over the estimated 5 year operational life of the mine. Material will be stockpiled as unprocessed, or processed with portable screens. Maximum processing rates for the screen operation will not exceed 150 tons per hour (TPH). Final reclamation will restore the site to a 55 ± acre open land for agricultural use. The reviewed life-of-mine area is 55 (LOM) acres. The project is located on the Meeks property northwest of Nellis Road, approximately 1 mile southwest of Gould Corners in the Town of Parmelia and the Town of LeRay, New York.
