Amended Negative Declaration
Chemung County - The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Hurley Farms, Inc. Sand & Gravel Mine - Hurley Pit will not have a significant effect on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement will not be prepared. This determination amends a previous determination of non-significance issued April 7, 2010 for a mine previously authorized by the DEC at the same site (DEC No. 8-0736-00109/00001). The applicant proposes to operate a 28-acre sand and gravel mine on the same site formerly permitted under Article 23 of the Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) to David Bowers as an 87-acre sand and gravel mine. The prior permit issued to David Bowers expired on April 24, 2012 and is no longer in effect (DEC No. 8-0736-00109/00001). The current proposal by Daniel Hurley of Hurley Farms, Inc. involves the removal of approximately 27 million cubic yards of sand and gravel from within the 28-acre mine area. The material will be mined from below the water table to a maximum depth of 50 feet using an excavator, front end loader, or dragline as appropriate. On-site processing will include use of a portable screen and, when necessary, a portable crusher with a maximum capacity of 100 tons per hour. Final reclamation will involve the creation of an open water pond of approximately 25 acres with a shallow-water fringe, along with approximate 3 acres of upland area. Upland reclamation would include replacement of topsoil and seeding with an approved seed mixture. The Daniel Hurley property is located one mile south of the City of Elmira, between the flood control levee and the Chemung River. The mine site will use an existing farm and commercial business access road at 1543 Maple Avenue. The project is located in the Town of Southport, Chemung County.
