Notice of Acceptance of Final Supplemental EIS

Chautauqua County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Tri-James Services, Inc., Maloy Farm Gravel Mine Expansion. The action involves the addition of 34.3 acres to the currently permitted 45.7 acre Maloy Farm Gravel Mine located on the property of Leon and Virginia Maloy. The proposal includes relocation of an abandoned AT&T Right-of-Way segment, relocation of Tributary #2 (Cold Brook) of Mill Creek around the new mine area in order to perpetuate its intermittent flow into Freshwater Wetland #EC-2 by connecting it into Crooked Brook (Cassadaga Creek Tributary # 19a). It is proposed to continue mining below the ground water table, thereby increasing the size of the excavated pond to 61.7 acres, surrounded by 12.8 acres of shoreline. The remainder of the expansion area is to be reclaimed to 1 acre of wetland and 4 acres of farm land. The main haul way will remain and will occupy 0.5 acres. It is also proposed to armor a total of approximately 700 linear feet of Mill Creek with waste concrete rip-rap, providing erosion protection for valuable farm land to compensate for mining 17.4 acres of farm land. No changes in mine operating procedures nor the reclamation plan for the currently permitted mine area, are proposed.
