Project Description: The project is a commercial sand and gravel extraction (i.e. sand and gravel pit) with a 2.7 ± acre life of mine area on a 991 ± acre parcel of property. The applicant proposes extraction of a maximum of 10,000 cubic yards of sand on an annual basis for a period of twenty to thirty years. The proposed mining operation will operate from April 1 to November 30, Monday through Friday, 6:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The sand and gravel material mined from the extraction will be used for repair and upkeep of Town projects in the Town of Webb. The equipment to be used in the mining operation includes a front-end loader, bulldozer, dump trucks and portable crusher. New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, Region 6, has a pending permit application.

Jefferson County - The Development Authority of the North Country (DANC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Town of Rutland Route 3 Phase III Sewer Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the Route 3 Phase III Sewer Project which will serve the central and south-central portion of the Town of Rutland including areas located along Perrigo Road, Burnup Road, Staplin Road, Pinewood Drive, Taylor Drive and Percy Chicks Drive. In addition, the Town of Rutland is proposing to install additional sewer lines in portions of Cemetery Road, Burnup Road and Staplin Road as well as School Street. These additional areas are within the Town sewer and water district but may not have been explicitly illustrated in the original SEQR documents for the Route 3 Corridor Sewer project. Therefore, the Development Authority of the North County has prepared a Supplemental FEAF for the additional proposed work.
The proposed additional work is minor in scope and is not anticipated to result in significant adverse environmental impacts. Rather, the additional work provides an opportunity to expand the designed system to easily accommodate additional residential areas and provide environmental benefits to local and regional water quality. The project is located along Perrigo Road, Burnup Road, Staplin Road, Pinewood Drive, Taylor Drive and Percy Chicks Drive in the Town f Rutland, New York.

Herkimer County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed New Town of Webb Mine - Pipeline Mine will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the proposal to develop and operate a 2.8 acre surface sand and gravel mine within a 991 acre parcel approximately 2.5 miles north of Old Forge. The project site is located within the applicant's property. The mine is intended to operate as a traditional surface extraction of sand and gravel and is not proposed to go 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 over 6000 cubic yards per year of aggregate sand and gravel over the estimated 20 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). Final reclamation will restore the site to a 2.8 acre vegetated meadow suitable for future reforestation. Reclamation will include the replacement of stockpiled topsoil and re-seeding with an approved USDA SCS seed mixture. The reviewed life-of-mine area is 2.8 (LOM) acres. The approved mined land use plan prepared by Harrington Associates-Geologists, dated July 2009.
Provisions are also made for mineral processing operations at the site with portable equipment. The project is located immediately west of Snowmobile Trail #1 and a short distance west of Pipeline Trail in the Town of Webb, New York approximately 2.5 miles north of Old Forge.
