Wayne County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Town of Butler - Wager Road Gravel Pit Expansion will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the Town of Butler to expand its Wager Road Gravel Pit by adding 5.8 acres to the current life of mine (LOM) area. The area to be added consists of 2.2 acres immediately north of the current excavation area, and 3.6 acres immediately south of the current excavation area. The project site is on the east side of Wager Road, within Town of Butler, New York, with properties totaling 98.5 acres.
All excavation of sand and gravel in the expansion areas will be from above the local water table, and will eventually convert the expanded excavation area to open vegetated land, based on mining plan and reclamation plan contours. Excavation will continue by front end loader and excavator, and will remove up to 6000 tons of material from the site in the next 5 year permit term. Material will continue to be processed on the site by screening. Hours of operation will continue to be Monday through Friday from 7 AM until 4:30 PM with no mining on weekends. No change in truck traffic volume is proposed. Final reclamation will restore the site to open vegetated land. Reclamation will include the replacement of stockpiled topsoil and re-seeding.
