Application ID: 5-1648-00106/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is Located: Malone, Franklin County
Project Description:

The applicant proposes to continue mining sand and gravel from within a previously permitted site and will expand the size of the life of mine acreage from 6.8 acres to 10.5 acres. The entire 10.5 acres will be disturbed by mining activities during the next 5 year permit term which includes 1.5 acres that were not previously disturbed. A minimum of 10,000 cubic yards of mined material will leave the site on an annual basis and an estimated 500,000 cubic yards is available over the life of the mine. All areas disturbed by mining activities will be reclaimed by the applicant. The goal of the reclamation is to return all disturbed areas to a condition suitable for wildlife habitat by establishing a vegetative cover. Woody species will establish themselves naturally through the process of succession. The entire disturbed area will be graded to stable 2:1 (horizontal to vertical) slopes and treated with lime and fertilizer prior to seeding and mulching. White, red or scotch pine seedlings may be planted as well to hasten the establishment of woody species.

Facility: Wcc LLC Topsoil Mine
304 Towpath Road |4500 Ft NE of The Intersection With McIntyre Street
Fort Edward, NY 12828-
Application ID: 5-5330-00056/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is Located: Fort Edward, Washington County
Project Description:

WCC LLC is proposing to begin surface mining and processing of topsoil from 52 acres of a 285 acre property. Mining would be conducted in 11 phases; the duration of which would be approximately 5 years. Topsoil would be excavated from the 1 to 2 foot high mining face in a continuous cut working away from the initial excavation and moving out toward the phase boundary. The proposed mining operation will utilize a portable screening facility to produce finished topsoil. A 1200 foot haul road would provide direct access to Environmental Soil Management Incorporated (ESMI). The screened topsoil will be drawn from the ESMI Facility on Towpath Road then follow the established truck route through the Village of Fort Edward. Reclamation of the mine site will consist of returning each phase to the existing grade using treated soil from ESMI. ESMI treats nonhazardous hydrocarbon contaminated soil using a thermal desorption process (DEC permit # 5-5330-00038/00019, Best Use Determination # 610-5-58). The reclamation objective is to create land suitable for a future build-out of industrial uses consistent with the currently designated Industrial Zoning Classification. Copies of the mining and reclamation plan can be reviewed at the DEC office in Warrensburg.
