ENB - Region 6 Notices 7/6/2011

Negative Declaration

Jefferson County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Town of Denmark Highway Department Mining Expansion will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the applicant to expand mining operation on Benjamin Mangan's property. The proposed expansion would add another 3.4 acres to the approved 1.6 acres life of mine area. The proposed expansion is within the mined land area which was originally permitted in 1996 and reclaimed in 2001. The mine is intended to operate as a traditional surface extraction of the Blasdell series silt loam which is the predominate soil type on the site. Mining is proposed for below the local water table. Excavation will be done by mechanical equipment, standard for sand and gravel mining operations, and for removal of material below the local water table. Material will be stockpiled as unprocessed "run-of-bank", or processed with portable screens and crushers. Maximum processing rates for the screen and crushing operations will not exceed 150 tons-per-hour (TPH). Final reclamation will restore the site to a 3.4 ± acre uniformly graded and re-vegetated open land. The reviewed expansion life-of-mine area is 3.4 acres. The project is located on the south side of the Middle Road approximately 2 miles west of the Jefferson and Lewis County Border in the Town of Champion, New York.

St. Lawrence County - The Town of Russell, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Potable Water System will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the installation of 8 inch cement lined ductile iron pipe, hydrants and appurtenances, plus construction of a new standpipe type water storage tank. Generally speaking, all main line work is planned to be in the road rights-of-way. River crossing is planned which would be completed using directional drilling which is typically a non-jurisdictional activity as determined by US Army Corps of Engineers. The water storage tank will be constructed on lands owned by the Town of Russell. The project is located in the Hamlet of Russell, Town of Russell, New York.
