West Windfield, NY 13491
Application ID: 6-2156-00037/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is Located: Herkimer County
Project Description:
The applicant, Robert Ferris, doing business as Ferris Stone Products, is proposing to expand the life of mine boundary of his sand & gravel mine from 5.0 acres to 10.8 acres, which will also be the affected area during the permit term .  Since the permittee’s reason for expansion is that the processing of gravel products is creating more spoils, the additional 5.8 acre area will be used only for the stockpiling of topsoil and overburden. The stockpiles will be utilized to create berms to effectively create a visual and noise barrier from neighboring properties.
The mine is located one mile east of the Village of West Winfield and 450 feet north of NYS Route 20 in the Town of Winfield.
