Negative Declaration

Sullivan County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Mongaup Valley Sand and Gravel will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal for the expansion of the approved mining limits of the 12.4 acre existing mine by 12.1 acres. The existing mine is located on a 114 acre parcel controlled by the applicant. Mining of the expansion area will involve the removal of approximately 500,000 cubic yards of material over an operational period of 5-10 years. On-site processing (crushing, screening and washing) will continue. Reclamation of the mined area will consist of grading and placement of topsoil and reseeding with perennial vegetation. The stated reclamation objective is to create 23.8 acres of open space (meadow/grassland). The project is located in the Town of Bethel, New York.
