Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation

Project is Located:

Watson, Lewis County

Project Description:

The applicant proposes to expand the existing sand and gravel mine to add 0.4 acres of land to the currently approved 4.3 acre life of mine area within a 673 acres parcel of land owned by the applicant. The project site is located 600 feet west of Chase Lake Road, 500 feet north of the Watson-Greig Town Line in the Town of Watson, Lewis County. The mine is intended to operate as a traditional surface extraction of the Colton-Adams-Gloucester coarse sand and gravel, which is the predominate soil type on the site. Mining is proposed for above the local water table. Excavation will be done by mechanical equipment, standard for sand and gravel mining operations, and for removal of material above the local water table. Material will be stockpiled as unprocessed "run-of-bank", or processed with portable screens and crushers. Maximum processing rates for the screen and crushing operations will not exceed 150 tons-per-hour (TPH). Final reclamation will restore the site to a +/-4.7 acre uniformly graded and re-vegetated area of open land. Reclamation will include the replacement of stockpiled topsoil, and re-seeding with an approved USDA SCS seed mixture. The reviewed life-of-mine expansion area is 0.4 (LOM) acres. The proposed mine expansion is on the north perimeter of the existing mine limits. Mining was originally permitted here beginning in 1993 and has continued ever since.

Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation

Project is Located:

Stockholm, St Lawrence County

Project Description:

The applicant proposes to expand the existing sand and gravel mine to add 4.9 acres of land to the currently approved 2.5 acre life of mine area within a 123.7 acre parcel located off of Route 11C in the Town of Stockholm. The project site is owned by Perras Excavating, Inc. and lies 800 feet north of Route 11C, with the access road located 1,200 feet east of the intersection of Route 11C and the White Road. The mine is intended to operate as a traditional surface extraction of the Adams loamy fine sand, which is the predominate soil type on the site. Mining is proposed to take place below the local water table. Excavation will be done by mechanical equipment, standard for sand and gravel mining operations, and for removal of material below the local water table. Mining is proposed to remove approximately 64,000 cubic yards of sand and gravel over the estimated 5 year operational life of the mine. Material will be generally mined as unprocessed "run-of-bank", or processed with portable screens. Final reclamation will restore the site to open meadow, with ponds to promote wildlife habitat. The reviewed life-of-mine expansion area is 4.9 (LOM) acres.

The proposed mine expansion is to the west of the existing mine limits. The proposed expansion area is nearly level, well drained terrain. The proposed expansion area is about 800 feet to the nearest residence. Mining was originally permitted here beginning in 2012 and has continued ever since.
