Negative Declaration

Chemung County - The Chemung County Legislature, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Expansion of Existing Mined Land Use in the Town of Big Flats will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the expansion of an existing mined land use in the Town of Big Flats, New York - the existing gravel mine is located on the eastside of the Elmira Corning Regional Airport (ECRA) and accessed by Chambers Road. The mine is currently owned and operated by Chemung County. Chemung County is proposing to expand the existing mining area of 52 acres to include an additional 45 acre area adjacent to the east side of the mine. The existing mine is currently being mined for gravel, which is used primarily for construction projects at the ECRA. The new 45 acre site is currently a meadow field partially within the Runway Protection Zone for Runway 24 and is on airport property. The expansion area is located along the edge of a residential development area. All mines will be reclaimed and seeded upon the completion of mining. Approximately 19 acres of the existing mine site is currently experiencing mining development and approximately 33 acres are in reclamation process. The proposed mine expansion site is generally flat with slopes of less than 10%. Slopes identified as greater than 10% are within sites that have undergone previous mining activities. Within the proposed expansion area, the water table ranges from 29 feet to 66 feet below ground level. Within the existing mine sites, the water table is approximately 11 feet below the mine floor.
