ENB Region 7 Completed Applications 04/05/2017

Broome County

Applicant:

David Bishop

Facility:

Bittner Quarry
128 Mount Carmel Rd
Windsor, NY 13865

Application ID:

7-0350-00136/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation

Project is Located:

Windsor, Broome County

Project Description:

The applicant proposes a new 2.6 acre life-of-mine bluestone quarry on a 200.44-acre parcel owned by Harvey and Margaret Bittner. Exploratory mining has previously occurred on 0.5 acres of the site. Additional mining will be adjacent to and follow the bed of the Hall Quarry. No protected streams, wetlands or other protected natural resources are expected to be adversely impacted. All storm water runoff will drain internally or into a storm water basin in the Hall Quarry. Typical blasting and processing of bluestone will occur, which is consistent with production activities at numerous other bluestone mines in the area. The mine will be reclaimed to stable slopes with natural vegetation similar to existing conditions.

Camillus, NY 13212

Application ID:

7-3120-00156/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation

Project is Located:

Camillus, Onondaga County

Project Description:

The applicant, Honeywell International Inc., proposes to develop and operate a 53.75 acre topsoil mine within a 193 acre parcel of land owned by Honeywell International Inc. The proposed mine will be located on the northwest side of Belle Isle Road in the Town of Camillus, County of Onondaga. The mine is intended to operate as a traditional surface mine with extraction of the topsoil from above the water table, with approximately 180,000 cubic yards of material being removed over the course of 5 years. All soil mined at the site will be transported using internal roads to Honeywell projects on Wastebeds 12-15, or to the Town of Camillus Construction and Demolition Landfill, to fulfill final site closure plans. Prior approval from the Department will be needed before transporting on public roadways. Operations at the site will entail the extraction of material beginning in the eastern portion of the site and moving in a southerly direction. Final reclamation will include grading of slopes, redistribution of topsoil and planting with a seed mixture to turn site into a vegetated open space.
