Application ID: 8-3240-00076/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is Located: Phelps, Ontario County
Project Description:

The applicant proposes to develop and operate an eight acre sand and gravel mine within a 100 acre parcel on Cress Road in the Town of Phelps. The mine is intended to operate as a traditional surface extraction of sand and gravel. Mining is not proposed for below the local water table. Excavation will be done by mechanical equipment (a bulldozer, backhoe, and front end loader), standard for sand and gravel mining operations. Mining is proposed to remove approximately 100,000 cubic yards of aggregate sand and gravel over the operational life of the mine. Material will be stockpiled as unprocessed "run-of-bank", or processed with a portable screen having a maximum processing rate of less than 100 tons-per-hour. Final reclamation will restore the site to agricultural use with uniformly graded contours and will include the replacement of stockpiled topsoil, and re-seeding with an approved USDA SCS seed mixture. The reviewed life-of-mine area is 8 acres, four of which are for reclamation only. Application materials are available for public review and comment at the Regional Office of NYS DEC.
