Permit(s) Applied for: Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is Located: Whitehall, Washington County
Project Description:
Douglas Wood is proposing to continue an existing shale mine on 6.0 acres of a 15.1 acre parcel. The property is owned by Frank J. Faryniarz and is located at 3597 County Route 21 in the Town of Whitehall. The mining will be conducted at a level of intensity that will exceed the specific threshold (more than 1000 tons per year) requiring a permit.  Consolidated  material (shale) will be excavated from the mining face by a tracked excavator. The face will range from less than 5 feet high to a 35 foot maximum height. The average height of the mining face will be 20 feet. A 1000 foot haul road will provide direct access to County Route 21 (Washington County Department of Public Works).  There will be less than ten loaded truck trips per day leaving the mine site. The life of mine is anticipated to be ten years with an annual production of less than 10,000 cubic yards of material. The reclamation objective is to return the property to agricultural land and open space. A copy of the application can be reviewed at the NYS DEC Office in Warrensburg.
