Application ID: 4-1038-00087/00007
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES
Project is Located: in Ghent in Columbia County.
Project Description:

Gro Max, Ltd. proposes to mine muck soils (humus) from 11.82 acres of a wetland/pond complex, a portion of which is NYS Regulated Wetland ST-35. The total affected acreage including staging and site access will be 22.8 acres. The wetland/pond area will be reclaimed back to a wetland/pond complex, and the upland staging area will be reclaimed to warm season grasses. Mining will occur in 3 phases consisting of 2.76 acres, 4.40 acres, and 4.66 acres, with the entire mining operation taking approximately 8 years to complete. Reclamation of each phase will occur as mining is completed. A SPDES application has been received for this proposed new discharge of varying amounts of mine dewatering and stormwater runoff to a Class C tributary of Fitting Creek. The department has made a tentative determination to approve this application, and has prepared a draft permit. Project is located on two parcels of property, the majority owned by Richard Ostrander, and a small portion owned by William and Anne Baldwin. The proposed mine site is on the north side of Ostrander Road, approximately 2000 feet north of the intersection of Ostrander Road and Winter Road, in the Town Ghent, Columbia County.
