ENB Region 8 Completed Applications 08/03/2011

Steuben County

Applicant:

Bath Sand & Gravel Inc
44 Lincklaen St
Cazenovia, NY 13035

Facility:

Knowles Mine
Moore Rd
Bath, NY 14810

Application ID:

8-4624-00076/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation

Project is Located:

Bath, Steuben County


Project Description:

The Department has received an application from Bath Sand & Gravel Inc for a 6.7 acre expansion of an existing sand and gravel mine on a 25.5 acre property located on Moore Road in the Town of Bath. The current permit authorizes operation in a 16.3 acre life of mine area. The 6.7 acre expansion proposed will increase the life of mine area to 23 acres. Expanded mining operations proposed will continue surface excavation of sand and gravel from above the local water table by mechanical equipment.

Proposed excavation will remove 20,000 to 30,000 cubic yards of sand and gravel from the site per year. Material will continue to be processed by a portable crushing and screening plant on site. Excavated sand and gravel will be stockpiled for loading onto trucks. The applicant has estimated maximum traffic from mining operations at 10 truck trips per hour.

Mining is not proposed below the local water table. Proposed final contours show grades that will retain storm water runoff within the mined area. No off site discharge of storm water runoff will be permitted. There are no NY State regulated streams or freshwater wetlands within the Life of Mine area.

Hours of operation proposed are unchanged from current operations. Final reclamation will restore the site to open meadow, with reclamation including the replacement of stockpiled topsoil, and seeding with an approved seed mixture.

The application is available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office, and a copy of the application materials has been sent to the Town of Bath.

Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification

Project is Located:

Palmyra, Wayne County


Project Description:

The applicant is proposing to dredge approximately 1,333 cubic yards of sediment from a pond created by the construction of a dam on Red Creek. The material is being removed in accordance with the approved September 2010 Remedial Work Plan which was developed under New York State's Brownfield Cleanup Program. Following a remedial investigation it was determined that the applicant must remove this sediment due to the presence of elevated polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) levels. The sediments will be removed, dewatered on-site and managed in accordance with the established Soil Cleanup Objectives (SCO), or as directed by the Department. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has determined that the proposed project meets the requirements of Nationwide Permit #38.
