ENB - Region 8 Notices 5/27/2009
Chemung County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Rosak Farm Mine will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the proposal by the applicant, Cold Spring Construction Company to develop and operate a new 29.5 acre sand and gravel mine. The mine will provide materials for New York State Department of Transporation (NYS DOT) projects in the region and will operate as a traditional surface excavation of sand and gravel using mechanical equipment, standard for this type of mining operation. Mining will occur in three phases from south to north across the site. A loader, truck and portable screening plant (on occasion a crusher may also be used) will remove sand and gravel until the water table is reached and then mining will continue utilizing a dragline. Mining is proposed to remove approximately 1.5 million cubic yards of aggregate sand and gravel over the estimated five year operational life of the mine. Material will be stockpiled as unprocessed "run-of-bank", or processed with portable screens and crushers. Maximum processing rates for the screen and crushing operations will not exceed 150 tons-per-hour (TPH). Reclamation will be concurrent with mining and will result in an addition of approximately 22 acres of water surface area to the existing Hanson Aggregates, Inc. pond system adjacent to this site. Upland reclamation will include the replacement of stockpiled topsoil, and reseeding with an approved USDA SCS seed mixture. The reviewed Life-Of-Mine (LOM) area is 29.5 acres. The project is located on the Cold Springs Construction Property approximately one mile north of the intersection of SR 13 and East Franklin Street in the Town of Horseheads, New York.
