Permit(s) Applied for:
Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is Located:
North Norwich, Chenango County
The project proposed by the applicant is to reauthorize a previously permitted mine site. The previous permit expired May 31, 2003. The applicant has proposed to reclaim the site in a way that is different than was originally proposed in the mining permit. Mining extraction activities have stopped. However, in order for the reclamation obligations to be fulfilled, the permittee has proposed to regrade the site in a manner that will enable the site to be operated as a Construction and Demolition (C&D) landfill that is exempt from DEC Part 360 (Solid Waste Regulations). Once reclamation of the site has been accepted by the DEC, the mining permit will be terminated.
Once the approximate grades have been established, the site will need to be covered with a minimum of 6" of topsoil and seeded. Approximately 4.6 acres of the former mine floor within the original 10 acre mine will remain unvegetated for placement and storage of the exempt C&D material.
