Negative Declaration

Jefferson County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Application for Mine Expansion submitted by David Gmeiner will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The applicant proposes to modify a mining permit for the expansion of operations of an existing limestone quarry. The modification involves adding 12.9 acres of land to the currently permitted 17.1 acres life of mine area. The project site is the applicant's property. The site access road intersects NYS Route 12E approximately 1,700 feet north of Fox Creek Road in the Town of Cape Vincent, St. Lawrence County. The mine is intended to operate as a traditional surface extraction of consolidated limestone. Mining is proposed for below the local water table. The quarry will be worked using standard drilling and blasting techniques. Existing overburden will be removed and stored in a perimeter berm for future reclamation use. Processing of materials will consist of crushing and dry screening. Aggregate washing is not proposed. Final reclamation will restore the site to a 30 ± acre open water surface within uniformly graded and re-vegetated open land. Up-land reclamation will include the replacement of stockpiled overburden/topsoil, and re-seeding with an approved USDA SCS seed mixture. The reviewed expansion life-of-mine area is 12.9 (LOM) acres. The project is located 2,000 feet east of NYS Route 12E and 1,700 feet north of Fox Creek Road, approximately 5 miles southeast of Cape Vincent, in the Town of Cape Vincent, Jefferson County, New York.

St. Lawrence County - The Town of Canton, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Pyrites Brownfield Opportunity Area Pre-Nomination Study will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the development of a Pre-Nomination Study for a Brownfield Opportunity Area (BOA) in the Town of Canton, Hamlet of Pryites. A Brownfield Opportunity Area is a program sponsored by the New York State Department of State to assist communities with revitalization through the reuse of brownfield and other underutilized sites. The Pre-Nomination Study proposes an area of approximately 266 acres including 244 acres of brownfield, abandoned or underutilized sites. This Pre-Nomination Study is a summary of the socio-economic conditions of the Town and Hamlet of Pyrites and an inventory of the existing and historic land conditions within the BOA target area with specific attention to the 15 identified brownfield, abandoned or underutilized sites. The Study also includes preliminary recommendations for future study and planning within the BOA and related to specific sites such as zoning law analysis, market analysis, transportation studies, redevelopment feasibility and end-use analysis, relocation feasibility and environmental site assessment. The project is located in portions of the Town of Canton, Hamlet of Pyrites, New York.
