Permit(s) Applied for: Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is Located: Phelps, Ontario County
Project Description:
The Department has received a Mined Land Reclamation application from Syracuse Sand & Gravel LLC for modified operations at the Syracuse Sand & Gravel - Lake Road Pit.  The applicant proposes to deepen the excavation to remove additional material from below the water table within the existing 58 acre life of mine (LOM) area.  Previous operations were limited to excavation above the local water table.  The proposed modification to allow mining below the water table is a major project requiring public notice as defined in Uniform Procedures Regulations 6 NYCRR Part 621.4(i)(2).  Since more than 2.5 acres in an agricultural district will be so affected, it is also a Type 1 action requiring coordinated review among involved agencies as defined in State Environmental Quality Review 6 NYCRR Part 617.4(b)(8).  The project site is located on the Syracuse Sand and Gravel LLC, and Joseph M. Teed properties, on Lake Road, approximately 4400 feet south of Burnett Road, in the Town of Phelps, Ontario County. The mine site is immediately west of the adjacent area of Class 2 Freshwater Wetland NW-4.

Operation of the mine will continue surface extraction of sand and gravel.  Additional excavation proposed for below the local water table will allow mining operations to continue through the end of the year 2015, and will convert 36 acres of the site to a pond with a maximum depth of 22 feet.  Based on the proposed elevations and final contours, the creation of the 36 acre pond will affect groundwater elevations only in the immediate vicinity of the pond, and should not significantly affect the groundwater levels in Wetland NW-4.  Dewatering of the pond has not been proposed nor will it be permitted.  Excavation will be by mechanical front end loader, backhoe, and dragline, and will remove approximately 1,600,000 cubic yards of sand and gravel over the 13 year operational life of the mine.  Some excavated material will be stockpiled as unprocessed “run-of-bank” for loading on trucks for transport off of the site.  The remaining material will be processed on site.  Processing will be limited to screening and washing, with existing ponds on the site continuing to provide the process water.  With mining operations at an average rate of 123,000 cubic yards per year, the peak truck traffic is estimated by the applicant to be 12 round trips per hour.  Final reclamation will result in the creation of a 36 acre pond, with stockpiled topsoil replaced and re-seeding for the remaining 22 acres to create re-vegetated open land.  Hours of operation will be limited to weekdays from 7 AM until 5 PM, and Saturdays from 7 AM to 3 PM, with no operations on Sundays and legal holidays.

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