Application ID: 8-0724-00025/00002
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is Located: Big Flats, Chemung County
Project Description:
The Department has received a Mined Land Reclamation application from Chemung County’s Elmira-Corning Regional Airport for Permit renewal and expansion of the Airport Mine.  The applicant proposes to expand an existing 29.9 acre sand and gravel mine by 22.07 acres, for a total of 51.97 acres, within properties totaling 626.3 acres. The project site is part of the Elmira-Corning Regional Airport, at 276 Sing Sing Road in the Town of Big Flats.  The expanded mine site will consist of a 32.99 acre section and an 18.98 acre section, both on the east side of Chambers Road near the northeast end of the Airport property.

Operation of the mine will continue surface extraction of sand and gravel.  Mining is proposed to remain above  the local water table, and will convert the mine site to storm water retention and infiltration areas.  In addition to areas previously approved, mining operations will remove approximately 282,000 cubic yards of sand and gravel from the 22.07 acre expansion area over the 7 year operational life of the mine.

Material will continue to be processed (dry screened) on site.  Maximum truck traffic has been estimated by the applicant to be 12 round trips per hour.  Final reclamation will include replacement of topsoil and seeding with an approved mixture.  Hours of operation will remain Monday through Saturday from 7 AM until 7 PM.

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 Big Flats.
