Ontario County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Van Opdorp Pit #2 Expansion will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by Marcy Excavation Services LLC to expand an existing 22.3 acre clay mine by 3.9 acres to 26.2 acres within a 67.9 acre parcel. The proposed expansion area is immediately east of and adjacent to the current Life of Mine area.

Operation of the mine will continue surface extraction of clay from above the local water table. Excavation will remove approximately 40,000 cubic yards of additional material from the Life of Mine area. Material will not be processed on site, but will continue to be loaded directly on to dump trucks for transport off site. Hours of operation will continue to be daylight only Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m., Saturdays 7:00 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. if needed, with no mining on Sundays. No change in truck traffic volume is proposed. Site access will continue to be from Silver Street along the National Grid right of way. Final reclamation will include the replacement of stockpiled topsoil and re seeding to restore the site to agricultural use.

The project is located west of Silver Street and south of County Road 13 in the Town of Manchester, New York.
