Negative Declaration

Cortland County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Homer Materials Mine Expansion will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the revision of the mining permit application for this existing sand and gravel mine for a proposed expansion of 32.2 acres to the existing 88 acre Life-of-Mine and NYS DEC considers it complete for technical review. The expansion is proposed along the western side of the mine and is entirely on lands owned by Suit-Kote Corporation. Direct impacts to the Class C watercourse through the area have been avoided. SEQR coordination with the Town of Homer was conducted initially in 2009 when the expansion was first proposed. The project is located at 5428 US Route 11 in Homer, New York.
