Application ID: 8-4630-00028/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is Located: Campbell, Steuben County
Project Description:
The Department has received a Mined Land Reclamation application from Knight Settlement Sand & Gravel LLC for a Mined Land Reclamation Permit to resume and expand mining operations at an existing surface gravel mine previously operated by R C Billings, located on NYS Route 415 in the Town of Campbell, Steuben County.  The mine is to occupy 21.4 acres of two parcels totaling 25 acres, owned by Curtis Hopkins and Gary Loucks.   Previous mining operations by RC Billings Inc, while permitted for 5 acres, affected 9.8 acres.  Knight Settlement Sand & Gravel LLC Proposes to expand the mine site from the currently affected 9.8 acres to a total of 21.4 acres, and to increase the rate of withdrawal to extract approximately 1,500,000 tons (1,000,000 cubic yards) of sand and gravel over a period of 20 years, an average rate of 75,000 tons (50,000 cubic yards) per year.

Operation of the mine will resume as a traditional surface extraction of sand and gravel. Mining is not proposed below the local water table.  Excavation will be by mechanical equipment, and crushing and screening operations at a rate less than 150 tons per hour will occur on site.  This material processing will occur at the center of the excavation area on the mine floor, below the surrounding terrain.  With mining operations at an average rate of 50,000 cubic yards per year, the maximum truck traffic to NYS Route 415 is estimated by the applicant at 12 round trips per hour.  Hours of operation will be limited to 7 AM until 4:30 PM Monday through Friday and 8 AM until 4 PM on Saturdays. Final reclamation will restore the site to non-agricultural meadow or brush land and will include the replacement of stockpiled topsoil and seeding.

The application materials are available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office, and a copy of the application materials has been sent to the Town of Campbell.
