St. Lawrence County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Mined Land Reclamation Permit Application, Northeast Drainage, LLC will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the applicant to develop and operate a 28.0 acre surface sand and gravel mine within a 54.2 acre parcel off of NYS Route 56 in the Town of Colton, New York. The project site is on property owned by Shawn Spellacy and lies on the east side of NYS Route 56, approximately 800 feet north of the intersection of Stowe Bay Road and State Route 56. The mine is intended to operate as a traditional surface extraction of the Adams Sand, Berkshire Loam, Carbondale Much, Croghan Loamy Fine Sand and Nicholville Fine Sandy Loam soil types on the site. Mining is not proposed to take place below the local water table. Excavation will be done by mechanical equipment, standard for sand mining operations and for removal of material from a bank face. Mining is proposed to remove approximately 1.5 million tons of sand and gravel over the estimated 25 year operational life of the mine. Material will be mined and screened and crushed as needed with portable processing equipment standard for surface mining operations. Final reclamation will restore the site to a grass meadow. Mine areas will be graded and stockpiled topsoil will be spread around the edges, and seeded with a perennial grasses and legume seed mixture. The reviewed life-of-mine area is 28.0 (LOM) acres.
