Negative Declaration

Jefferson County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Mined Land Reclamation Permit Application for Johnson's Sand and Gravel, Inc will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal to expand the existing sand and gravel mine to add 35.2 acres of land to the currently approved 49.9 acres of life of mine area. The project site is the applicant's property. The mine is intended to operate as a traditional surface extraction of the Windsor loamy fine sand, which is the predominated soil type 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 40,000 tons-per-year of aggregate sand and gravel over the estimated 30 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 58 ± 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 proposed mine expansion is east and north of the existing mine limits. The proposed expansion area is nearly level, excessively drained terrain. The proposed expansion area is not within 500 feet of any residence. Mining was originally permitted here beginning in 1977 and has continued ever since. The reviewed life-of-mine expansion area is 35.2 (LOM) acres.

The project is located south of East Line Road, approximately 3 miles north of the Village of La Fargeville in the Town of Orleans, New York.

Oneida County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Herbicide Treatment of Phragmites australis (common reed) populations in the Moose River Plains Wild Forest, Sargent Ponds Wild Forest, Split Rock Mountain Wild Forest, Black River Wild Forest, Blue Mountain Wild Forest, Debar Mountain Wild Forest and Ferris Lake Wild Forest will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the herbicide application to control Phragmites australis, (common reed), an exotic invasive plant in the Adirondack Forest Preserve. Twenty-four sites with a total area of approximately 4.38 acres ranging in size from .0057 to 2.72 acres will be treated. The control method selected is the application of a glyphosate-based herbicide in accordance with best management practices identified in the "Inter-Agency Guidelines for Implementing Best Management Practices for the Control of Terrestrial and Aquatic Invasive Species on Forest Preserve Lands in the Adirondack Park." It is possible additional sites will be added as necessary within the five year time frame for this project. Controlling Phragmites australis will help to eliminate this invasive plant before it spreads further within the Forest Preserve, threatening native species and creating a monotypic plant community in impacted areas. This can result in a decrease in native biodiversity and ecological quality of the invaded habitat as well as serving as source populations for future invasion. The project is located in the Black River Wild Forest, Town of Forestport; Blue Mountain Wild Forest, Town of Long Lake; Debar Mountain Wild Forest, Town of Brighton; Ferris Lake Wild Forest, Towns of Arietta and Caroga; Moose River Plains Wild Forest, Town of Long Lake; Sargent Ponds Wild Forest, Town of Arietta; Split Rock Mountain Wild Forest, Town of Westport in the Counties of Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Hamilton and Oneida, New York.

St. Lawrence County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Mined Land Reclamation Permit Application for the Town of Potsdam will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal to expand the existing sand and gravel mine to add 17.83 acres of land to the currently approved 9.0 acres of life of mine area. The project site is Henry Basham's property. The mine is intended to operate as a traditional surface extraction of the Adams Sand and Waddington Gravelly Sandy 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, and for removal of material above the local water table. 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 26.83 ± acre re-vegetated open land.

The project is located west of the Benson Road, approximately 1.5 miles southeast of the Village of Hannawa Falls in the Town of Parishville, New York.
