Oswego County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Runions Gravel Pit Mining Permit Application will not have a significant adverse environmental impact.

The project involves the development and operation of a new 22.7 acre sand and gravel mine within a 90.4 acre parcel. The mine will include excavation of bank-run gravel reserves using a pay loader, excavator, and bulldozer. A portable screener, and crusher, will be used to process the material. Mining is proposed to go below the seasonal high-water table. Traffic from the mine is estimated to be an average of 24 truck trips per day.

The mine will be reclaimed as a 13.9 acre pond and a 1.9 acre pond, and the above water table perimeters of the mine will be graded to a one on two slope.

The project is located southwest of the intersection of Clifford Road and Red Schoolhouse Road in the Town of Palermo, New York.
