Negative Declaration

Allegany County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Karr Valley Road Pit Expansion will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the mining of sand and gravel from approximately 115.5 acres of land, consisting of 41 acres owned by Karr Valley Road Associates (which was acquired from the Allegany County Department of Public Works, and formerly known as their Almond Gravel Pit) and presently permitted by NYS DEC for mining, and 74.5 acres owned by Hubert and Virginia Wightman, of which 7 acres are presently permitted by NYS DEC for mining, and 67.5 are proposed to be mined. There will be no excavation into groundwater, including for the washplant. Material processing will include a screener, crusher, and wet processing in a closed loop wash plant system and settling ponds. Upon cessation of mining, the land will be returned to a condition suitable for agricultural purposes, with stable slopes around the perimeter. The existing pond and storage building will remain upon reclamation of the site. The project is located north of Interstate 86, south of Karr Valley Road, and west of Woodlawn Lane in the Town of Almond, New York.
