ENB - Region 3 Notices 3/27/2013

Negative Declaration

Orange and Ulster Counties - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Stap Farm Mine will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposed 19.93 acre, unconsolidated sand and gravel mine located on a 50.59 acre parcel that is part of the Robert Stap Farm. The entire farm encompasses 116 acres of land in the Town of Shawangunk, Ulster County. The proposed mine site is currently an existing farm field used for growing alfalfa and hay. The proposed mine will involve the removal of approximately 300,000 cubic yards of material over a 5 year period. Ingress and egress to the mine site will be via Drexel Drive located in the Town of Crawford, Orange County. No onsite processing is proposed. Mining will be conducted via the use of a track excavator, bulldozer, dump truck and a wheeled loader. The reclamation objective of the mine is to eliminate steep portions of the existing farm field and lower the overall elevation of the site to produce a more gently sloped farm field. The project is located on the north side of Greising Road in between Drexel Drive and Hoagerburgh Road in the Town of Shawangunk, New York.
