Schyler County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Town of Hector - Jolly Road Gravel Mine will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. Town of Hector proposes to develop and operate a new 16.35 acre surface sand and gravel mine within a 50.56 acre property in the Town of Hector. The mine site is located on the Max and Sandra Spaulding property, on the north side of Jolly Road, approximately 1,000 feet west of County Route 9 in the Town of Hector, New York.
The mine will involve surface excavation by bulldozer and front end loader, and is proposed to remove 850,000 cubic yards of sand and gravel from the life of mine area over an approximately 15 year operational life. Excavated material will be processed on site by a screening plant on the pit floor. Screened material will be stockpiled for loading onto trucks. Topsoil and overburden will be stockpiled in an 8 foot high berm along the east side of the site and seeded for later use in site reclamation. Mining is not proposed to a depth below the local water table.
Hours of operation proposed are 6:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, with no work on weekends or holidays. Final reclamation to vegetated open land is proposed, and will include the replacement of stockpiled topsoil and seeding with a seed mixture suitable for pasture or hay.
