Wayne County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Dolomite Products Co Inc - Palmer Road Pit will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a 15.3 acre expansion of an existing 647.1 acre sand and gravel mine on properties totaling 1,050 acres in the Towns of Arcadia and Palmyra.
Most of the 15.3 acre expansion area, known as the "Railroad Pit", has been affected by previous mining operations. The current permit for a 647.1 acre life of mine area was issued August 24, 2006, and was the subject of a Final Environmental Impact Statement which NYS DEC accepted June 2, 2006.
The expansion area is located at the southeast end of the mine site, and will be used as a new location for the processing equipment currently located on the east side of Palmer Road. This will change the mine entrance to the "Proposed Alternate Site Access" identified in the application for the current permit.
Mining operations will be unchanged from those previously permitted, except for the direction of mining, now to initially proceed to the west from the floor of the new processing area, rather than to the east from the Palmer Road location. Excavation by mechanical equipment will remove approximately 156,000 tons of sand and gravel from the west side of the expansion area not previously mined, and from the creation of 2 ponds to serve as settling basins and process water sources. Hours of operation and traffic volume will be unchanged from current operations. Final reclamation to agricultural land is proposed.
The project is located at Whitbeck Road and Palmer Road in the Towns of Arcadia and Palmyra, New York.
