Steuben County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Syracuse Sand and Gravel LLC Renewal and Modification will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by Syracuse Sand and Gravel LLC to renew and modify their existing Mined Land Reclamation Permit for the sand and gravel mine on Jones Road. The current permit authorizes mining operations in a 9 acre life of mine area. The modification proposed will re-affect 4.1 acres approved as reclaimed, involve deeper excavation over a total area of 7.7 acres, and will result in extraction of clay in addition to sand and gravel from above and below the local water table. The areas involved are within the current 9 acre Life of Mine area.

The application also proposes to add a 400 ton per hour crusher to the material processing operations, currently limited to screening. In addition, a stone lined diversion ditch is proposed west of the mine area, to intercept surface flow from uphill and prevent it from entering the mine area.

Proposed mining operations below local ground water elevation will result in surface and ground water discharges to the Beartown Flood Control Canal. Grading will direct intercepted groundwater and storm water runoff from the mine area to a sedimentation basin prior to discharge to the Flood Control Canal. A separate approval for work within the Flood Control Canal from NYS DEC's Elmira Flood Control Office will be required, with channel improvements in the drainage swale to the Flood Control Canal completed before the project as proposed may commence.

The project is located on Jones Road in the Town of Erwin, New York.

Wayne County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Modification of Peter A. Stoep's Mined Land Reclamation Permit will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by Peter A. Stoep for a modification of the Mined Land Reclamation Permit for his sand and gravel mine on Layton Street Road. The current permit authorizes operation in a 32.8 acre Life Of Mine (LOM) area, with operations during the current Permit Term ending May 17, 2015 limited to 15.2 acres within the LOM area. The modification proposed is a deeper excavation than originally proposed, to below the local water table. This will eventually create a 26 acre pond within the LOM area, changing the site reclamation from a restoration of agricultural use, to a pond surrounded by 6.8 acres of reclaimed upland, with possible residential use of the upland after mining operations on the site are complete.

Operations in the current Permit Term will create approximately 7 acres of this pond within the 15.2 acre Permit Term area. Deeper excavation is proposed to remove approximately 600,000 additional cubic yards of sand and gravel from the LOM area. Grading towards the excavation will retain storm water runoff within the mined area. No off site discharge of storm water runoff is proposed. There are no NY State regulated streams or freshwater wetlands within the LOM area. The applicant has estimated that mining operations will continue for 20 years at the current rate, before the pond reaches its full 26 acre extent.

Material processing will remain limited to screening. No fuel storage is proposed on the site, and no increase in maximum truck traffic volume is proposed. The life of mine area will remain 32.8 acres.

The project is located on the east side of Layton Street Road in the Town of Lyons, New York.
