Notice of Completion of Final Environmental Impact Statement

Orleans County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has completed a Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) on the proposed Frontier Stone Quarry. A hard copy of the Final EIS is available at the NYS DEC - Region 8 Office, 6274 East Avon-Lima Road, Avon, NY and on line at: www.continentalplacer.com.

The action involves the construction of a new 215.5 ± acre dolomite/limestone quarry on a 269.45 ± acre parcel located in the Town of Shelby about 3.7 miles south of the Village of Medina. The property is on the south side of Fletcher Chapel Road about several hundred feet east of the Sour Springs Road. The excavation area totals 172.2 ± acres and mining would be divided into four (4) phases over the estimated 75 year operational life of the mine. Quarrying would be conducted by standard drill and blast technology with front-end loaders and excavators feeding a primary crusher with shot rock. Mining is proposed below the water table and the project includes dewatering of the quarry area. As proposed, the estimated maximum water withdrawal for mine dewatering is 554,264 gallons per day, which would be discharged at the southwest corner of the site to an existing agricultural drainage ditch. The reclamation objective will be to create open space with two lakes for recreation and wildlife habitat. The two lakes, separated by an existing utility line, would be approximately 35.2 and 156.1 acres in size. The project is located on Fletcher Chapel Road in the Town of Shelby, New York.
