Permit(s) Applied for:
Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is Located:
Arcadia, Wayne County
The Department has received an application from DB Cahill Inc to resume operation of a 2 acre sand and gravel mine on a 92 acre property owned by Robert Hutteman, who previously operated the mine at the site from 2002 until 2007. The mine site is located on the west side of Arcadia-Zurich-Norris Road, approximately 400 feet north of the intersection of Fairville Station Road. Mining operations at the site will continue as previously permitted, with excavation by mechanical equipment. No material processing will occur at the site. Mining operations are proposed to remove approximately 16,000 cubic yards of sand and gravel over a 5 year operational life. The applicant has estimated truck traffic from hauling operations to be a maximum of 20 trucks per hour.
Mining is not proposed to a depth below the local water table. Cross sections show grades that will retain storm water runoff within the mined area and allow infiltration into the soil. No off site discharges are proposed. There are no NY State regulated streams or freshwater wetlands within the Life of Mine area.
Hours of operation proposed are 7 AM to 5 PM, Monday through Friday, and 7 AM to noon on Saturday. Final reclamation to vegetated land is proposed, and will include the replacement of stockpiled topsoil and seeding with an approved mixture.
The application is available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office, and a copy of the application materials has been sent to the Town of Arcadia.
