Permit(s) Applied for:
Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is Located:
St Lawrence County
The applicant proposes to add a fourth bench to their existing Ogdensburg quarry which is located on the north side of Route 37 and at the end of Cedar Street in the City of Ogdensburg and Town of Oswegatchie. The mine is a traditional stone quarry extracting the Ogdensburg dolostone by traditional stone quarry blasting techniques. This is an existing facility with the only change being a depth increase of 40 feet. This depth increase is anticipated to increase the longevity of the quarry an additional 40 - 50 years beyond the current expected life. The existing permit allows for the facility to mine below the local water table elevation. Reclamation for this facility calls for the quarry proper to be flooded and all non flooded areas will be covered with overburden and topsoil. These areas will then be seeded with an approved USDA NRCS seed mixture. The life-of-mine area remains unchanged at 120.0 (LOM) acres.
