Project is Located: Allegany, Cattaraugus County
Project Description:
The applicant proposes to add a total of 88.50 acres to the Giardini Brothers' Gravel Pit (formerly Rehler Gravel Pit) currently permitted for 20.5 acres in the Town of Allegany. The expansion consists of 52.52 acres west of Gargoyle Road in the Town of Allegany (West Site), and on the east side of Gargoyle Road, east of the City of Olean's fire company training area (East Site), 26.68 acres in the Town of Allegany and 13.30 acres in the City of Olean. Excavation below the groundwater table is proposed, deepening the existing previously excavated 46.77 acre West Site lake to a maximum depth of 50 feet and expanding the existing previously excavated 10.4 acre East Site lake to 24.35 acres, also up to 50 feet deep. The existing material processing and stockpile area at the West Site will remain at the same location with the addition of settling basins to eliminate process water discharge into the lake. No processing is proposed at the East Site. A single haul road is proposed to connect the East Site to the West Site, via a right-of-way across the fire training area, continuing perpendicularly across Gargoyle Road. The estimated life of the expanded mine is 74 years and the reclamation objective is private recreation.
