ENB - Region 8 Notices 4/1/2009

Negative Declaration

Chemung County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Town of Van Etten Pompa Sand and Gravel will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the proposal by the applicant to develop and operate a new 9.54 acre surface sand and gravel mine. The mine is intended to operate as a traditional surface extraction of the Valois series of gravelly loams which is the predominate soil type on the site. Mining is not proposed for below the local water table. Excavation will be done by mechanical equipment, standard for sand and gravel mining operations. Mining is proposed to remove approximately 15,000 tons of aggregate material annually over the operational life of the mine for use by the Town for road maintenance and construction. This site has been previously mined at thresholds below that which requires a NYS DEC mining approval. Material will be stockpiled as unprocessed "run-of-bank", or processed with a portable screens and crusher. Maximum processing rates for the screen and crushing operations will not exceed 150 tons-per-hour (TPH). Final reclamation will restore the site to an open pasture/wildlife area with uniformly graded and revegetated open land including the replacement of stockpiled topsoil, and reseeding with an approved USDA SCS seed mixture. The reviewed Life-Of-Mine (LOM) area is 9.54 acres. The project is located on the Pompa property on State Route 224 just outside and to the west of the Village of Van Etten in the Town of Van Etten, New York.
