Positive Declaration

Ulster County - The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Shott Rock, Inc. Aggregate Mine may have a significant effect on the environment and that a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The action involves the operation of a 25.5 acre consolidated mine on a 44.9 acre site that was previously mined as a blue stone quarry. The applicant proposes to drill, blast and mine the bedrock, and then crush, screen and temporarily stockpile the processed stone. A portion of NYS Freshwater Wetland #S-1 is located on the site and may be disturbed as part of the proposal, along with a portion of the adjacent area of the wetland. The project sponsor may propose creation of some new wetland as mitigation. Mining will excavate downward for a total drop of 140 feet, at least part of which will be below groundwater. The site would be reclaimed as a 16+acre man-made lake. The amount of finished material to be removed from the site is anticipated to be between 100,000 and 150,000 tons per year. Total mine reserves are estimated to be approximately 3 million cubic yards or approximately 4.2 million tons. The project duration is estimated to be 28 years. The project site is located at the northern end of Morse Road (a Town road), approximately 1,000 feet north of NYS Route 212.
