Oneida County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Modification to Philip G. Williams Mining Permit will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the applicant to add 33.0 acres of land to an existing mining permit located within a 283.0 acre parcel east of Preston Hill Road and 2,450 feet north the California Road in the Town of Vienna, New York. The mine operates as a traditional surface mine extracting the Chenango gravelly fine sandy loam formed on gravelly loamy glaciofluvial deposits derived mainly from sandstone, shale and siltstone. No mining is proposed to take place below the local water table. Excavation will be done by mechanical equipment, standard for sand mining operations and for removal of material from a bank face. Mining is proposed to remove approximately 1.5 million tons of sand and gravel over the estimated 30-40 year operational life of the mine. Material will be mined and loaded directly into trucks or crushed and screened as needed with portable processing equipment standard for surface mining operations. Final reclamation will restore the site to open space. Mine areas will be graded and stockpiled topsoil will be spread around the edges, and seeded with a perennial grasses and legume seed mixture. The reviewed life-of-mine increased area is 33.0 (LOM) acres giving a total LOM of 67.5 acres.
