ENB - Region 8 Notices 12/21/2011
Genesee County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed County Line Stone, Inc. Akron Quarry Expansion may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The action involves the expansion of the Akron Mine Quarry, including mining of land (approximately 90.3 acres of excavation) and overburden storage areas (approximately 20.9 acres) adjacent to the existing approved mining area. The total acreage included in this application but not previously approved is 111.2 acres. The new excavation areas will be along Crittenden and Schurr Roads (15.4 acres) in the Town of Newstead and along the east side of the quarry (74.9 acres) in the Town of Pembroke. In addition, the overburden will be stockpiled on either side of Scribner Road (20.9 acres) in the Town of Pembroke. The modification request also includes the realignment of Cohocton and Scribner Roads in the Town of Pembroke to allow the quarry expansion. The proposed reclamation plan is the creation of lakes with perimeter green space similar to the existing reclamation plan. The project is primarily located directly east of the main quarry in the Town of Pembroke, Genesee County. A small percentage of this portion will also be in the Town of Newstead, Erie County. The project is located at 4515 Crittenden Road in the Town of Akron, New York.
