ENB - Region 6 Notices 5/23/2012

Negative Declaration

Jefferson County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Meeks Trucking and Paving Mined Land Reclamation will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the applicant to develop and operate a 25.2 acre surface topsoil, clay, and sand and gravel mine within the 120.0 acre parcels south of Evans Mills. The mine is intended to operate as a traditional surface extraction of the Farmington Loam and Hudson Silt Loam which are the predominated soil types on the site. Mining is proposed for above the local water table. Excavation will be done by mechanical equipment, standard for sand and gravel mining operations. Mining is proposed to remove approximately over 1,000 tons-per-year of topsoil, clay, and sand and gravel over the estimated 10 year operational life of the mine. Material will be stockpiled as unprocessed "run-of-bank", or processed with portable screens and crushers. Maximum processing rates for the screen and crushing operations will not exceed 150 tons-per-hour (TPH). Final reclamation will restore the site to a 25.2 ± acre uniformly graded and re-vegetated open land for agricultural uses. The reviewed life-of-mine area is 25.2 (LOM) acres. The project is located on both sides of Goulds Corners Road, approximately 1.5 miles south of Evans Mills, in the Town of LeRay, New York.

Jefferson County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Morgan Williams Mined Land Reclamation will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the applicant to develop and operate a 15.8 acre surface sand and gravel mine within an 81.8 acre parcel owned by Wilbur Tennant. The project site is located south off of Sand Place, approximately 1,500 feet west of Exit 38 of Interstate Route 81, +/-2 mile south of the Village of Mannsville. The mine is intended to operate as a traditional surface extraction of the Plainfield and Windsor Loamy fine, which are the predominate soil types on the site. Mining is proposed for below the local water table. Excavation will be done by mechanical equipment, standard for sand and gravel mining operations, and for removal of material below the local water table. Mining is proposed to remove approximately 20,000 cubic yards of sand and gravel over the estimated 20 year operational life of the mine. Material will be stockpiled as unprocessed "run-of-bank", or processed with portable screens. Maximum processing rates for the screen operations will not exceed 150 tons-per-hour (TPH). Final reclamation will restore the site to a +/-9 acre open water surface within uniformly graded and re-vegetated open land. Up-land reclamation will include the replacement of stockpiled topsoil, and re-seeding with an approved USDA SCS seed mixture. The reviewed life-of-mine area is 15.8 (LOM) acres. The project is located on the Wilbur Tennant Property south of Sand Place and west of US Route 11, approximately 2 miles south of Mannsville, in the Town of Ellisburg, New York.
