Project Description: The ongoing 25% expansion of an existing municipal sand and gravel mine. The life-of-mine will be expanded to access approximately 31,000 cubic yards of material over a 9 year period. The site was the subject of APA permit 99-217 which expired. No blasting, screening or crushing will occur on the site. The Village of Tupper Lake anticipates approximately 90 truck trips a year to put up winter road sand which is typically done using 30 loaded truck trips a day for three days. The life-of-mine boundary expansion will be approximately 2 acres in size. A 25 foot setback will be maintained between the life-of-mine boundary and the adjacent landowners.
