Applicant: Glenn O Hawbaker Inc

PO Box 135
State College, PA 16804 -0135
Facility: Scudder Mine
2175 Indian Hills Rd
Painted Post, NY 14870
Application ID: 8-4642-00028/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is Located: Erwin, Steuben County
Project Description:
The Department has received a Mined Land Reclamation application from Glenn O. Hawbaker Inc for the expansion of the mine site known as the Scudder - Indian Hills Mine.  The applicant proposes to expand a 26.36 acre sand and gravel mine to 41.13 acres within two properties totaling 145.6 acres on the south side of the Canisteo River, between Route 15 and Indian Hills Road in the Town of Erwin.

Department staff have determined that the entire area to be affected by the expansion of the mine has previously been affected by mining operations, mostly associated with the construction of Route 15.

Operation of the mine will continue surface extraction of sand and gravel, with mining methods and operations unchanged from the present permit.  Excavation will be by mechanical equipment, and will remove approximately 465,000 cubic yards of sand and gravel over the 10 year operational life of the mine.  Crushing and wet screening material processing will continue on site.  The truck traffic has been estimated by the applicant to be a maximum of 10 trips per hour.  Mining by drag line will occur below the water table and will increase the size of an existing pond from 11 acres to approximately 31.2 acres.   Final reclamation will include the replacement of stockpiled topsoil outside of the pond area, and seeding with an approved mixture.

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 Erwin.
