ENB - Region 8 Notices 11/2/2011

Negative Declaration

Ontario County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Willow Bend Farm LLC - Gravel Pit Expansion will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a 1.64 acre expansion of an existing sand and gravel mine in Ontario County Agricultural District #8. The current permit authorizes operation in a 14.31 acre life of mine area. The 1.64 acre expansion proposed will increase the life of mine area to 15.95 acres. Excavation is proposed to remove approximately 54,500 cubic yards of sand and gravel from the 1.64 acre expansion area over the next 5 years. Material will continue to be used primarily for Willow Bend Farm operations at the County Road #7 site, and other Willow Bend Farm locations along County Road #4, for fill and farm roads. The expansion will continue current operations at the site. 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. The project is located on County Road 7, north of NYS Thruway in the Town of Manchester, New York.
