Positive Declaration and Public Scoping
Genesee County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Akron Quarry Proposed Expansion may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. Written comments will be accepted until November 2, 2012. A public scoping session will be held on October 3, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. at the Corfu Community Center, 116 East Main Street, Corfu, NY 14036. The action involves an application by County Line Stone Co., Inc. for 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, Erie County and along the east side of the quarry (74.9 acres) in the Town of Pembroke, Genesee County. 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 is similar to the existing reclamation plan. The proposed quarry expansion would extend the life of mine for an estimated 25 year period of time. The project is located at 4515 Crittenden Road in Akron, New York.
