Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation

Project is Located:

Rose, Wayne County


Project Description:

The Department has completed its initial review of a Mined Land Reclamation permit modification application submitted by the Wayne County Highway Department. The modification includes: transfer of the mine from Wayne County to Montemorano Brothers, Inc; increase in the Life of Mine from 28 to 51.1 acres; mining below the water table and modifing reclamation to a water-based plan; adding a crusher and wash plant to the screening operation; increased hours of operation from 7 AM-4:30 PM weekdays only, to 6:30 AM to 6:30 PM weekdays and 7 AM to 5 PM Saturdays; and an increase in maximum truck traffic to an average of 5 trucks per hour and a maximum of 15 trucks per hour.

The project site is the Richard Bacon property on Wolcott Road in the Town of Rose. The mine operates as a traditional surface extraction of sand and gravel. Excavation will be done by mechanical equipment, standard for sand and gravel mining operations. Mining is proposed to remove approximately 750,000 cubic yards of aggregate sand and gravel over the 10-15 year operational life of the mine. Material will be stockpiled as unprocessed "run-of-bank", or processed with portable screens, a crusher, and a wash plant. Final reclamation will create a 31.3 acre pond approximately 15-20 feet deep, surrounded by revegetated upland. Reclamation will also include the replacement of stockpiled topsoil, and re-seeding with an approved USDA SCS seed mixture. The reviewed life-of-mine area is 51.1 acres total.
