ENB - Region 1 Notices 11/24/2010
Suffolk County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Roanoke Sand and Gravel Corp. Mining Modification will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by Roanoke Sand and Gravel to increase the depth and lateral extent of the below-water table excavation of this existing mine, and to remove the approximately 18 acre north pond area from the life of mine acreage. The current permit authorizes mining on 151 acres of a total of 298 contiguous acres that have been previously affected by mining, and this modification will expand the footprint of the proposed lake established as part of the reclamation plan by approximately 21 acres.
The depth of the excavation is proposed to be increased from approximately 55 feet below sea level to approximately 90 feet below sea level, and the 151 acre lake configuration is proposed to expand to 172.2 acres, all of which are within an area that has been previously mined. The ultimate depth of any proposed excavation would be limited by permit conditions, an underlying clay layer, and by the operational limit of the dredge equipment. Operational aspects of mining operations at the site will remain the same, and no increase in intensity or other escalation of mining activity is proposed. The project is located on Rocky Point Road in Middle Island, Town of Brookhaven, New York.
