Negative Declaration

St. Lawrence County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Mine Expansion by Michael Brannen will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal to expand the surface sand and gravel mine operation to add 6.8 acres to the currently approved 6.0 acres to a total of 12.8 acres of life of mine within a 106.9 acre parcel west of the North Mein Road. The mine is intended to operate as a traditional surface extraction of the Croghan loamy fine sand which is the predominated 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". Final reclamation will restore the site to a 5 ± acre open water surface within uniformly graded and re-vegetated open land. Up-land reclamation will include the replacement of stockpiled topsoil, and re-seeding with an approved USDA SCS seed mixture. The reviewed life-of-mine expansion is 6.8 (LOM) acres. The project is located on the applicant's property on the west side of the Mein Road, approximately 2,700 feet south of the intersection of the Mein Road and State Highway 37, 1.5 ± miles west of the hamlet of Louisville in the Town of Louisville, New York.
