ENB - Region 9 Notices 1/26/2011
Wyoming County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed D & H Materials Route 39 Eagle Pit will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the proposal to operate a surface unconsolidated gravel pit, a portion of which is the site of an abandoned mine. The 13.58 acre life of the mine includes the former gravel pit, an excavation area of 10.44 acres, buildings and an existing haul road as well as a new haul road. In addition, approximately 0.44 acres will remain as open space for equipment storage and stockpiling of marketable gravel and sand. The mine site is proposed to be reclaimed to revegetated slopes and 5.40 acres of new cropland. Approximately 250,452 cubic yards of material is proposed to be removed from the site at a rate of 50,000 cubic yards per year for a 5 year period. The project is located at 7785 NYS Route 39 in the Town of Eagle, New York.
