Steuben County

Applicant:

Syracuse Sand & Gravel LLC
PO Box 6419
Syracuse, NY 13217 -6419

Facility:

Gang Mills Pit
Jones Rd
Erwin, NY

Application ID:

8-4642-00034/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation

Project is Located:

Erwin, Steuben County


Project Description:

The Department has received an application from Syracuse Sand & Gravel LLC for renewal and modification of the Mined Land Reclamation Permit for its 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 the Department'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.

Excavation is proposed to remove approximately 400,000 tons of sand, gravel, and clay from the site. There are no NY State regulated streams or freshwater wetlands within the mine area.

Reclamation will include the replacement of stockpiled topsoil, and re-seeding with an approved seed mixture.

The project site is located on the Syracuse Sand & Gravel properties bounded on the east and north by private woodlands, the west by the Cold Spring Construction Company's Scudder Pit, and the south by Jones Road and US Route 15.

The complete 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 Erwin.

Availability of Application Documents:

Filed application documents, and Department draft permits where applicable, are available for inspection during normal business hours at the address of the contact person. To ensure timely service at the time of inspection, it is recommended that an appointment be made with the contact person.

Wayne County

Applicant:

Peter A Stoep

Facility:

Stoep Bros Pit
East Side Layton Street Rd - South of Debusse Rd
Lyons, NY 14489

Application ID:

8-5428-00068/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation

Project is Located:

Lyons, Wayne County


Project Description:

The Department has received an application from Peter A. Stoep for 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.

Upland reclamation surrounding the pond will include the replacement of stockpiled topsoil, and re-seeding with an approved seed mixture.

The project site is located on the Stoep property on the east side of Layton Street Road, south of Debusse Road.

The complete 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 Lyons.

Availability of Application Documents:

Filed application documents, and Department draft permits where applicable, are available for inspection during normal business hours at the address of the contact person. To ensure timely service at the time of inspection, it is recommended that an appointment be made with the contact person.
