Steuben County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Steuben County 8.7 Acre Gravel Mine will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves an application from the Steuben County Department of Public Works (DPW) to develop and operate a new 8.7 acre surface gravel mine within a 52.7 acre property in the Town of Avoca. The mine site is located on the Wayne Mitchell property, on the west side of Waterbury Hill Road in the Town of Avoca, New York. The mine entrance will be located approximately 800 feet north of the intersection of County Route 6.

The mine will involve surface excavation by bulldozer and front end loader, and is proposed to eventually remove 400,000 cubic yards of sand and gravel from the mine site over an unspecified operational life. Excavated materials will be processed on the pit floor by crushing and screening equipment. Processed material will be stockpiled for loading onto trucks. Topsoil and overburden will be stockpiled in a perimeter berm around the area to be excavated, and seeded for later use in site reclamation. Mining is not proposed to a depth below the local water table.

Hours of operation proposed are 6:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, with no work on weekends or holidays. Final reclamation will restore the site to vegetated open land, and will include the replacement of stockpiled topsoil, and re-seeding with an approved seed mixture.

Plans show grades that will retain storm water runoff within the mined area and allow infiltration into the soil. No off site discharges are proposed. There are no streams or New York State regulated freshwater wetlands within the Life of Mine area.
