What is the Brownfield Cleanup Program?

New York State's Brownfield Cleanup Program (BCP) is designed to encourage private-sector cleanups of brownfields and to promote their redevelopment as a means to revitalize economically blighted communities. The BCP is an alternative to "greenfield" (land not previously developed or contaminated) development and is intended to remove some of the barriers to, and provide tax incentives for, the redevelopment of brownfields. Since its inception (2003), the BCP has catalyzed the cleanup of more than 300 contaminated sites statewide and incentivized redevelopment. There are more than 350 active sites in the BCP.

Additional information on the New York State's Brownfield program is available at NYS DEC's website:

Negative Declaration

Cattaraugus County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Mendell Gravel Mine will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the mining of sand, gravel and topsoil on approximately 69 acres of land. Mining operations include removing aggregate material from the groundwater table through the use of a dredge. Material processing includes crushing and screening with portable units, as well as material processing (crushing) with the dredging equipment. Upon reclamation there will be a lake approximately 49 acres in size and approximately 100 feet deep, surrounded by vegetated slopes suitable for wildlife habitat and/or open space. The project is located on the west side of NYS Route 219 in Great Valley, New York.
