ENB - Region 3 Notices 9/19/2012

Negative Declaration

Dutchess County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Kent Hollow Sand and Gravel Mine will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the mining of an approximately 34 acre life-of-mine (LOM) surface unconsolidated sand and gravel mine within an 82 acre parcel, which upon completion of mining activities will be reclaimed to agricultural land. Removal of top soil will be accomplished with a bulldozer and loader in advance of mining and stockpiled in berms along the edges of each mining phase. Excavation of sand and gravel will be accomplished by use of a rubber-tire front-end loader with processing of material on site or placing directly into haul trucks for shipment. Processing of aggregates on site will be done as needed by a small dry screen plant and crusher to reduce the diameter of oversized material. The excavated/processed material will be transferred to trucks and transported from the mine site. The mine site is presently comprised of an existing mine, old farm fields and intervening hedge rows and is located entirely within an 82 acre parcel owned by Roy Steiner, Kent Hollow, Inc. The project is located on the west side of Route 2, entrance to the site is about 0.2 mile south of and across the highway from Clark Hill Road in the Town of Amenia, New York
