Application ID: 5-1548-00160/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is Located: Ticonderoga, Essex County
Project Description:
    The applicant proposes to develop a new sand and gravel mine on a portion of a 38 acre parcel owned by David Huestis along Vineyard Road in the Town of Ticonderoga. A total of 8.3 acres will be disturbed by mining activities over the life of the mine which is projected to be 8 years.  It is estimated that no more than 2 acres will be cleared and grubbed in preparation for mining in any given year and that 100,000 cubic yards of material will be removed annually.  A portable screen and crusher will be used to process material on site and processed material will be stored on site.  A 1000 feet long access/haul road will connect the mine site to Vineyard Road approximately 30 feet north of power pole #20.  Reclamation will take place concurrently with mining as portions of the mine are cut to final design grade and as working space allows.  Reclamation will consist of grading to stable 1 on 2 slopes which will be covered with stockpiled overburden material, then limed, fertilized and seeded to establish a uniform vegetative cover.
    The project is also being reviewed by the Adirondack Park Agency as APA Proj. No.2002-31.
