Permit(s) Applied for: Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is Located: Philipstown, Putnam County
Project Description:
*** This is a RE-NOTICE of a Notice of Complete Application, which originally appeared on February 27, 2002,  in order to extend the public comment date from March 29, 2002 for two additional weeks to the new public comment date of April 12, 2002.  All other aspects of the permit applications and the Notice remain exactly as stated in the original Notice. ***

         The Philipstown Industrial Park, Inc., (c/o Paul Kinkel) proposes to expand the existing Philipstown Industrial Park 23-acre mine by an additional 16 acres to a total of 39 acres, in order to prepare the site for the 37-lot Quarry Pond Estates subdivision, which previously received preliminary approval by the Philipstown Planning Board on November 29, 1990.  
        Currently unconsolidated material (sand and gravel) is mined on the site.  The proposed modification would allow approximately 30,000 cubic yards of additional sand and gravel to be mined, and would also allow approximately 130,000 cubic yards of consolidated material (bedrock & rock outcrops) to be blasted, crushed and sold off-site to prepare the site for the construction of homes.  
         The applicant proposes to install the rock crusher in the expansion area, which requires an Air State Facility (ASF) Permit.  This Department has prepared a Draft ASF Permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a permit for the emissions from the rock crusher under Article 19 of the Environmental Conservation Law.  This tentative determination indicates that the emissions regulated under this statute are considered satisfactory in regards to regulatory standards for permit issuance, based on information available to the Department at this time.  As a tentative determination, the Department seeks comment on the proposed regulatory activity prior to making a final decision on permit insurance.  As such, this tentative determination does not signify Department approval for or endorsement of the activity for which permit a sort or for the overall proposed project.  The Draft ASF Permit is available in the Department's New Paltz office from the Contact Person listed at the end of this Notice.
           The applicant also proposes to expand the hours for the processing of material (crushing) from the current Monday through Friday (8 AM until 5 PM), to the proposed Monday through Saturday (7 AM until 5 PM).  Additionally, the applicant proposes that blasting be allowed Monday through Friday between the hours of 10 AM and 2 PM.
            The mining expansion is located immediately north of the existing Philipstown Industrial Park mining site on the east side of Route 9 immediately south of Horton Road in the Town of Philipstown, Putnam County, NY.
