Completed Applications Consolidated SPDES Renewals
Positive Declaration and Public Scoping

Cattaraugus County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed I.A. Construction Company, Inc., Lippert Gravel Pit Additions (DEC Permit Application No. 9-0420-00054/00003) may have a significant adverse impact on the environmental and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. A public scoping session is to be scheduled in the near future. The action consists of two additions for the mining of sand and gravel on a total of 51.76 acres of land. Of this, 19.35 acres located north of South Nine Mile Road extending east from the previously mined area on land leased from Charles and Roberta Montanye. The remaining 32.41 acres are south of South Nine Mile Road, east and south of the existing processing plant and formerly mined area, on land owned by IAC. It is proposed to excavate below the ground water table, increasing the size of the existing lake on the Montanye property from the existing 17.86 acre lake to 28.68 acres, and the lake on the IAC property from the current 19.8 acres to 51.2 acres. On the Montanye property the proposed excavation area will involve the National Flood Insurance Program Floodway and topsoil stockpiling in the Flood Fringe. Excavated material will be trucked from the Montanye property to the existing plant across South Nine Mile Road; conveyors will be used to move material mined from the IAC property to the plant. The estimated life of the proposed new mine areas is 10 years. Affected land above the water elevation will be reclaimed by grading and revegetating with perennial grasses and legumes. The IAC Lippert Gravel Pit is located at 4451 South Nine Mile Road in the Town of Allegany, Cattaraugus County.
