ENB Region 8 Completed Applications 09/19/2012

Chemung County

Applicant:

David W Bowers

Facility:

Bowers Topsoil Pit
S Corning Rd - Co Rte 10
Big Flats, NY 14814

Application ID:

8-0724-00043/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation

Project is Located:

Big Flats, Chemung County


Project Description:

The Department has received an application from David W. Bowers for a 2 acre expansion of an existing topsoil mine on South Corning Road (County Route 10). The current permit authorizes operation in a 24.9 acre life of mine area. The 2 acre expansion proposed will increase the life of mine area to 26.9 acres.

Excavation is proposed to remove approximately 32,000 cubic yards of topsoil from the 2 acre expansion area over the next 10 years. Material will continue to be processed on the site and the expansion will continue current operations.

Mining is not proposed below the local water table. An undisturbed buffer 100 feet wide will separate mining operations from the Chemung River to the north of the expansion area. Proposed final contours show grades that will retain storm water runoff within the mined area. No off site discharge of storm water runoff will be permitted. There are no NY State regulated streams or freshwater wetlands within the expansion area.

No change has been proposed in hours of operation. Final reclamation to open meadow is proposed, and will include seeding the remaining topsoil with an approved mixture.

The application is available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office, and a copy of the application materials has been sent to the Town of Big Flats.
