Negative Declaration

Fulton County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Fulmont Ready-Mix Sand Bank Mine Expansion will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the modification of an existing Mined Land Reclamation (MLR) permit. Fulmont Ready-Mix is currently permitted to mine sand and gravel from a 61.0 ± acre Life of Mine (LOM) sand and gravel mine located on Maple Avenue in the town of Johnstown, New York. The applicant has proposed to modify their current MLR permit to combine their current LOM with that of an adjacent permitted sand and gravel mine site; located on Ferndale Cemetery property; formerly operated by E.J. Simek General Contractors. The applicant has proposed to expand their LOM area; by removing the adjacent setback area of each mine to create one contiguous mine site; by approximately 29.6 acres, for a total LOM area of 90.6 ± acres. This will allow the applicant to continue to operate at this site, by increasing the amount of material available for extraction, while eliminating the need to expand horizontally outside of the areas previously affected by mining. The mine will continue to be operated as a traditional surface opening extraction by means of mechanical excavation and processing by screening, which is standard for this type of unconsolidated mining operation. No mining below the water table is proposed, with the exception of the existing water retention basins.
