ENB - Region 8 Notices 10/17/2012

Negative Declaration

Chemung County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Renewal and Expansion of the Pallidino Brewer Buchtel Pit will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the applicant, Narde Paving Company, to renew its permit and expand the mine site known as the Pallidino Brewer Buchtel Pit. The applicant proposes to expand an existing 30.2 acre sand and gravel mine by 9.4 acres to 39.6 acres. The proposed expansion will include approximately 4 acres of affected areas outside the current Life of Mine area.

Operation of the mine will continue as a surface extraction of gravel from as much as 30 feet below the local water table, and will enlarge the existing 14.4 acre pond on the mine site to approximately 28 acres, based on mining plan and reclamation plan contours. Excavation will be by front end loader, excavator, and drag line below the water surface. Mining operations will remove over 1 million cubic yards of additional material from the Life of Mine area. Material will continue to be processed by washing, screening, and crushing on the site, with wash water being returned to the expanding pond. Hours of operation will continue to be Monday through Saturday from 7:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. with no mining permitted on Sundays. No change in truck traffic volume is proposed. Final reclamation will restore the site to meadow surrounding the enlarged pond.

The project is located on the Robert Brewer and Paul Buchtel properties, at 3010 Lake Road, between Newtown Creek and NYS Route 17 in the Town of Horseheads, New York.

The action involves a proposal by the applicant, Montemorano Bros Inc, to expand an existing 228 acre topsoil, sand, and gravel mine by a total of 8.7 acres to 236.7 acres within properties totaling 333.75 acres. The proposed expansion consists of a 0.8 and a 7.9 acre area to be added to the northeast end of the current Life of Mine area. The expansion area is on one of the Montemorano properties.

Operation of the mine into the expansion areas will continue surface extraction of topsoil, sand, and gravel from above and below the local water table, adjacent to previously approved excavations creating ponds on the mine site. Excavation will be by bulldozer, front end loader, and hydraulic excavator. Mining operations will remove approximately 100,000 cubic yards of additional material from the expansion areas. Material processing is not proposed. Hours of operation will continue to be Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. with no mining Sundays and holidays.
