Permit(s) Applied for:
Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is Located:
Schuyler Falls, Clinton County
The applicant proposes a net reduction in the currently permitted life of mine area; from 45 acres to 26.6 acres. Unaffected as well as reclaimed acreage will be removed from the life of mine area, while 3.7 new acres are proposed to be added by expanding the pit to the east. The existing mine site is located on the west side of Shingle Street approximately 3,000 feet south of Rock Road and is part of a 102 acre parcel owned by Douglas Rushford. Operations in the proposed new area will be consistent with currently approved operations, with final reclamation consisting of seeding and mulching to establish grass vegetation and allow woody cover to eventually re-establish.
