Facility:

Ozonia Sand and Gravel Mine

Hopkinton, NY

Application ID:

6-4046-00062/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation

Project is Located:

Hopkinton, St Lawrence County

Project Description:

The applicant proposes to develop and operate a 24.4 acre surface sand and gravel mine within a 66.4 acre parcel off of Lake Ozonia Road. The project site is on property owned by Seaway Timber Harvesting Inc. and lies east of Lake Ozonia Road, approximately 3 miles north westerly of Lake Ozonia. The mine is intended to operate as a traditional surface extraction of the Naumburg-Crogan Complex and Potsdam-Tunbridge-Crary Complex soil types. Mining is proposed to take place at a minimum of two feet above the local seasonal high water level. Reclamation will restore the site to open space and forest. Excavation will be done by mechanical equipment, standard for sand and gravel mining operations, and for removal of material from the bank face. Mining is proposed to remove approximately 800,000 tons of sand and gravel over the estimated 30 year operational life of the mine. Material will generally be processed with portable crushers and screening plants. Final reclamation will restore the site to vegetated open space to promote wildlife habitat and forest. Mine areas will be graded and stockpiled topsoil will be spread around the edges, and seeded with a warm season (C-4) grass mixture of Switchgrass, Big Bluestem, Little Bluestem, and Sand Lovegrass seed mixture. The reviewed life-of-mine area is 24.4 (LOM) acres.
