Notice of Complete Application

Applicant: Carl A. McCracken III
186 Harrisburg Run Road
Bradford, PA 16701

Authorization Applied for: 6 NYCRR Part 557 Secondary Recovery Operation

Project Location: Chipmunk Lease, Bradford Field
Town of Allegany, Cattaraugus County

Project Description: Carl A. McCracken III (McCracken) currently operates oil production wells in Allegany, Cattaraugus County. McCracken purchased the Chipmunk Lease (Lease) in 2007 for the purpose of restoring and operating existing injection wells located on 34 acres on the western portion of the Lease. The wells that will be used for injection on the Lease were drilled between 1958 and 1959. According to New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) records waterflood operations were conducted on the former Cordova Resources' lease through the late 1980s. McCracken has requested and applied for authorization to operate a secondary recovery facility utilizing injection wells. The proposed action involves the operation of ten existing injection wells (B/R 1, B/R 2, B/R 4, B/R 5, B/R 6, B/R 7, B/R 7b, B/R 8, B/R 9, B/R 10) drilled to the Chipmunk Sand at depths from 850 feet to 970 feet below ground surface for the purpose of enhanced oil recovery. Existing production wells will be utilized to complete the waterflood pattern. A mixture of fresh water and recycled brine water will be used for injection.

NYS DEC has made a tentative determination to approve the action referenced above. As a tentative determination, NYS DEC seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on approving the action.

Availability of Application Documents: Filed application documents, are available for inspection under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Law during normal business hours at the address of the below listed contact person.

Cattaraugus County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed D & H Materials Wagner Gravel Pit will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the mining of gravel and material processing with a portable dry screen and portable crusher, affecting 11.28 acres of land out of 37.82 acres owned by the applicant at the site. The site contains the former, reclaimed Pioneer Pigott Gravel Pit, which will be reopened and mined deeper, and with a different life of mine boundary. The reclamation objective is wildlife habitat. This same mining proposal/SEQR Action was previously reviewed pursuant to SEQR for Donald Wagner, the previous landowner, and a Negative Declaration was issued on April 30, 2003. NYS DEC has reviewed D & H Materials, Inc.'s current proposal and determined that there is no change from the previously reviewed action and is relying on the existing SEQR Negative Declaration, Notice of Determination of Non-Significance for this action. The project is located north of NYS Route 98 and west of Hughs Road in the Town of Freedom, New York.

Erie County - The Orchard Park Central School District, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Replacement District Offices and Bus Transportation Facility will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the acquisition of a 13 ± acre site for use as District offices, bus transportation facility offices and maintenance garage, bus parking, technology equipment building, and storage to replace existing facilities at multiple locations. The site is currently operated as a commercial enterprise and is comprised of several buildings including retail/office and storage, an aboveground truck fueling area, paved and gravel surfaces, a storm water management area, an underground septic system, and vacant land with soil storage and wooded area.

The District proposes to utilize the existing developed portion of the site (approximately 9 acres) and convert the on-site buildings to house District offices, bus transportation offices, a bus maintenance building, a technology building (computer services offices and equipment), aboveground storage tank fueling area, and cold storage. The approximately 4 acre "panhandle" portion of the site to the south will not be developed. The existing 6,000 ± square foot office building will be renovated and expanded, with an addition of 4,000 ± square feet. Existing disturbed gravel and asphalt paved areas will be improved as necessary to accommodate buses and other vehicles. Underground utilities will be upgraded (e.g., electrical, plumbing) as necessary. The existing storm water management / retention system and septic system will be replaced with new underground systems in the same approximate footprint to accommodate the District's proposed use of the site.

The project is located at 2240 Southwestern Boulevard in Orchard Park, New York.

Notice of Acceptance of Draft EIS and Public Comment Period

Erie County - The City of Tonawanda City Council, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Spaulding Commerce Park - Roadways, Utilities and GEIS. Written comments on the Draft EIS will be accepted until May 13, 2011. A copy of the Draft EIS may be obtained from:

The action involves the redevelopment of the former Spaulding Fibre site (Spaulding). The 47 acre vacant site is the location of a former heavy manufacturing facility that ceased operations in 1992. The remediation of the entire site was accomplished with State and local funding, including the New York State Superfund Program for hazardous wastes and the Environmental Restoration Program (ERP) for the remaining contamination on the property. Through these programs, the State will provide environmental releases to the City and to end users of the site. As a result of these activities, the entire site has been remediated to Restricted Residential standards. Formerly developed areas have been rough graded and covered with top soil and seeded. The property has been rezoned from heavy industrial to a new zoning district: the Spaulding Commerce Park district.

The purpose of the current action is to develop a schematic layout of the site sufficient to construct access roadways and install utility service for the site. The Generic Environmental Impact Statement (GEIS) also addresses various possible scenarios for the redevelopment of the site, including No Action; No New Roadway; and other alternatives. The GEIS assesses potential impacts and establishes mitigations and thresholds to guide future development at the site.

The project is located at 310 Wheeler Street in the City of Tonawanda, New York.
