Chicago, IL 60606-1743
Facility: Morton Salt Div
45 Ribaud Ave East
Silver Springs, NY 14550-0409
Application ID: 9-5632-00007/00043
Permit(s) Applied for: Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification
Project is Located: Gainesville, Wyoming County
Project Description:
Morton Salt has proposed a 514 acre expansion to the company's existing facility for solution mining of subsurface salt on a site in the Town of Gainesville, south of School House Road and west of the Gainesville/Castile Town line. A 13,500 foot long pipeline is proposed to connect the new well field to the company’s existing brine transmission pipeline in the Village of Silver Springs. Water Quality Certification from the Department is required because there are impacts to federal wetlands. Mitigation for these impacts is included in the project plans. Site preparation would include construction of the pipeline and inspection road paralleling it, drilling pads, well houses, and on-site instrumentation. As many as 30 wells may be drilled during the life of the well field. When depleted the wells would be plugged with cement, the well casings cut off 4 feet below grade, and the well house, gravel well pad and access road removed. Morton must file a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan which is consistent with the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System General Permit for Storm Water Discharges from Construction Activities (GP-93-06). A Permit to Drill Wells (6 NYCRR 552) is required from the Department's Division of Mineral Resources. In addition, an Underground Injection Control Permit is required from the US Environmental Protection Agency for injection into the wells for solution mining. The application and associated materials are available for review and comment at the Regional Office in Buffalo, the Sub-Office in Allegany and the Central Office in Albany.
