Project Description:

The applicant proposes to expand the mining operation by adding 21.7 acres to the current surface sand and gravel mine. The mine is located approximately eight miles north of the City of Rome. The project site is on the applicant's property west of River Road and north of County Route 53. The mine is intended to operate as a traditional surface extraction of sand and gravel. The Alton gravelly loam is deep, well-drained to somewhat excessively drained gravelly loam soils formed from glacial outwash and permeability is moderate. Mining is not proposed for below the local water table. Excavation will be done by mechanical equipment, standard for sand and gravel mining operations. Material will be stockpiled as unprocessed "run-of-bank", or processed with portable screens and crushers. Maximum processing rates for the screen and crushing operations will not exceed 150 tons-per-hour (TPH). Final reclamation will restore the site to a 61.2 acre open space as a revegetated meadow.

Wastewater consists of groundwater, stormwater runoff, landfill leachate and boiler blowdown. Treatment consists of primary settling pond, aeration tanks, and clarifiers. The facility has treated surface discharge to an unnamed tributary to the Oswegatchie River, a class D water.

Stormwater Outfalls 004 through 010 have been added. The completed items in the Schedule of Compliance have been deleted and the Compliance of Schedule has been changed to a Schedule of Submittals. A Sludge Capacity Analysis report and short term high intensity monitoring for parameters have been added to the Schedule of Submittals. The following items have been included under Special Conditions which have been added to the proposed permit: the narrated form discharge notification requirements; pollutant mass and concentration report requirement; biocides, slimicides, corrosion control chemicals and other water treatment chemical additives usage notification requirement; and, no process wastewater discharge notification. The monitoring locations page, and recording, reporting and additional monitoring requirements page have been updated. General Requirements have been added in accordance with EPA and DEC agreement.
