ENB - Region 9 Notices 6/1/2016

Negative Declaration

Allegany County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Brest Gravel Pit will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a modification of the reclamation objective of the Brest Gravel Pit to include a Construction & Demolition (C&D) Debris Processing Facility within the current Life of Mine boundary. The C&D Facility has received a Solid Waste Management Registration and will receive unadulterated wood products as well as uncontaminated concrete, masonry products, steel and asphalt millings. The remainder of the reclamation objective remains unchanged: 13.87 acres of agricultural land and approximately 11.18 acres of combined grass buffers and pond areas. The wood will be processed in a tub grinder and the concrete will be processed with a portable crusher. Concrete crushing is expected to occur only twice per year for a period of 7 to 10 days each time. The project is located on NYS Route 19 in the Town Scio, New York.
