Wayne County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Montemorano Bros Inc Expansion will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the 56.5 acre expansion of a 39 acre sand and gravel mine on properties totaling 363.84 acres, operated by Montemorano Bros Inc and known as Pit # 5. The proposed expansion consists of an open agricultural field to be added to the south end of the current Life of Mine (LOM) area. The expansion area is on one of the Montemorano properties, at Travel Knapps Corners Road, on the east side of High Street in the Town of Galen, New York.
Operation of the mine into the expansion area will continue surface extraction of sand and gravel from above and below the local water table, adjacent to the previously approved excavation, enlarging the existing pond on the mine site. Excavation will be by bulldozer, front end loader, hydraulic excavator, and cable crane dragline. Mining operations will remove approximately 1,900,000 cubic yards of additional material from the expansion areas. Currently permitted material processing - crushing, screening and washing - will continue.
Final reclamation will convert the expansion area to mostly open water, with vegetated open grassland adjacent to the excavated pond. Reclamation will include the replacement of stockpiled topsoil and re seeding of the area adjacent to the pond.
