Negative Declaration

Steuben County - The Town of Erwin Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed New York State Electric and Gas (NYSEG) Line and Sullivan Park Subdivision will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a two lot subdivision and site plan from NYSEG for a new substation at Sullivan Park, the expansion of the existing control house off Lower Pace Road and the construction of approximately 9.2 miles of overhead transmission line. The project is located in the Town of Erwin and Town of Campbell, New York.

Wayne County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Renewal and Modification of the Bacon Pit Permit will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the applicant to renew and modify an existing 28 acre sand and gravel mine. The modification includes the following changes:

• Transfer the mine from Wayne County to Montemorano Brothers, Inc.
• Increase the Life of Mine from 28 to 51.1 acres.
• Mine below the water table and modify reclamation to a water-based plan.
• Add a crusher and wash plant to the screening operation.
• Increase hours of operation from 7 a.m.-4:30 p.m. weekdays only, to 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. weekdays and 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays.
• Increase maximum truck traffic to an average of 5 trucks per hour and a maximum of 15 trucks per hour.

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.

The project is located on the south side of Wolcott Road (County Route 225) approximately 2,300 feet east of Armstrong Road in the Town of Rose, New York.
