ENB - Region 8 Notices 2/13/2013
Steuben County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Gridley River Road Gravel Mine will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the development and operation of a 10.18 acre surface gravel and topsoil mine within a 74 acre property in the Town of Corning. The project site is located at 11250 River Road, on the south side of River Road approximately 0.8 miles southeast of the Village of South Corning, Town of Corning, New York.
Excavation will be by front end loader, excavator, and drag line, with materials mined to a depth of 42 feet below the current surface, or approximately 30 feet below the local water table. Mining is proposed to eventually remove 150,000 cubic yards of sand and gravel from the mine site, over an approximately 10 year operational life. Material will be processed by washing, crushing, and screening. Prior to the start of processing operations, topsoil and overburden berms will be placed at the north and northwest borders of the mine area. Some topsoil will be sold, with sufficient topsoil, overburden, and silt from material washing retained for reclamation around the excavated pond. Reclamation plans show the berms along the north and northwest borders of the mine area remaining after final reclamation.
Final reclamation will convert approximately 7.5 acres of the mine area to a pond open water surface, with the water surface elevation dependent on groundwater level.

Yates County - The Town of Jerusalem, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Adoption of a Local Law will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves creating the Route 54A Scenic Overlay District to protect the viewshed from the road, to regulate land uses and building/site design so that they will complement rather than detract from a scenic experience, and ensure that the development of the community reflects the vision as set forth in the Town of Jerusalem Comprehensive Plan. The project is located in the Route 54A corridor of the Town of Jerusalem, New York.
