For Adirondack Park Agency: Comment Period Ends: March 12, 2015

Project Description: The project consists of an 11.6 ± acre municipal sand and gravel mine. Approximately 4.2 acres will be disturbed during the first 5 year permit term. Approximately 10,000 cubic yards annually of material will be mined at the site and used on Village of Saranac Lake municipal projects, including road maintenance (winter sanding) and repairs. Crushing and screening of materials will be conducted on the site on an as-needed basis. The mine will operate on an as-needed basis between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Due to the nature of the mine, i.e. a municipal mine to supply materials solely for Village projects, the mine will not operate year round.
