Permit(s) Applied for:
Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is Located:
Davenport, Delaware County
The applicant proposes to operate a 4.9 acre surface unconsolidated sand and gravel mine, which upon completion of mining activities will be reclaimed to grassland and returned to pasture. Excavation will be accomplished mainly by use of a rubber-tire front-end loader with a small portable plant, consisting of a multi-deck screening plant brought to and from the site as needed, typically a few weeks per year. Use of a portable crusher may be necessary at the site on an annual or biannual basis to crush any oversized material as it accumulates. The excavated/processed material will be transferred to trucks and transported from the mine site. The mine site is presently vacant agricultural/pasture land and is situated entirely within a 127 acre parcel owned by Warren & Carol Shuman located approximately 3 miles east of Oneonta on the south side of Southside Drive, east of the intersection with Coe Hill Road.
