ENB - Region 8 Notices 2/25/2009

Negative Declaration

Livingston County - The Town of West Sparta, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Town of West Sparta Woodsville Water District will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the installation of approximately 7,800 lineal feet of watermain. The Woodsville Water District is located entirely within the Town of West Sparta. However, in order to connect the Woodsville Water District to existing watermains, construction will also occur in the Town of North Dansville along Hartman Road and a portion of NYS Route 36. In addition to watermain installation, activities include installation of fire hydrants, valves, road crossings, excavation and bedding materials, watermain connections, residential hook-ups, and surface restoration. Residents and businesses in these areas are dependent upon individual groundwater supplies that historically have produced very low yields of poor quality water. The project is located along portions of Woodsville Road, NYS Route 36, Buck Road and Hartman Road, Towns of West Sparta and Dansville, New York.

No other significant changes are proposed to operational activities, reclamation plans, production volumes, or vehicle trips, etc. other than the lateral expansion of the extent of the Life of Mine (LOM). The mine operates as a traditional surface extraction of sand and gravel. Final reclamation will restore the site to agricultural use. The reviewed LOM area is 40.6 acres.
