ENB Region 9 Completed Applications 11/12/2008

Cattaraugus County

Applicant:

Robert Pease

Facility:

Pease Mine
West of Route 353
Little Valley, NY

Application ID:

9-0454-00010/00003

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation

Project is Located:

Little Valley, Cattaraugus County


Project Description:

The applicant proposes a 14.95 acre addition to the currently permitted 9.4 acre sand and gravel mine, located on the west side of New York State Route 353, approximately one-half mile north of the intersection with Woodworth Hollow Road, on the east side of Little Valley Creek, in the Town of Little Valley. Current mining activities have resulted in the creation of a 2.8 acre body of water out of the 6.2 acre lake in the currently approved plan. The expansion also includes excavation below the ground water table, further increasing the size of the lake to 14.29 acres. The existing haul road will continue to be used and there will be no changes in material processing. The final reclamation plan also includes a 5.65 acre meadow surrounding the lake and permanent vegetated berms to the east and south at the life of mine limits, to provide a buffer to the residences located along State Route 353. As mitigation for the loss of agricultural land, the proposal also includes rehabilitation of a surface water diversion ditch in the Town of Mansfield to improve/protect agricultural land from flooding and erosion. The anticipated life of the expanded mine is 20 years.
