Project is Located: Erwin, Steuben County
Project Description:
The Department has completed its initial review of a Mined Land Reclamation permit application submitted by Hakes for the renewal and modification of their current permit for the Gang Mills mine.  The modification would add 4.1 acres to the current 9.0 acre life-of-mine (LOM) area.  The mine will continue to operate as a traditional surface excavation of gravelly loams, which are the predominate soil types on the site.  The current Mined Land Use Plan (MLUP) which describes mining and reclamation plans for the site remains essentially unchanged.  Final reclamation will restore the site to graded, stabilized and re-vegetated open land.  There are no changes proposed to mining methods, hours of operation, rate of mining, truck traffic or final reclamation are proposed.  This facility has been subject to a previous environmental impact reviews in compliance with State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA) regulations, and the determination has been reached that mining at this site is an allowable use which would not result in significant adverse environmental impacts.   The mine is on Hakes property on the north side of U.S. Rt. 15, approximately 2 mi. south of Gang Mills.

Guyanoga
Penn Yan, NY 14527
Application ID: 8-5726-00004/00003
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is Located: Jerusalem, Yates County
Project Description:
The Department has received a Mined Land Reclamation application from The Town of Jerusalem for the expansion of the Town’s Highway Barn Gravel Pit.  The applicant proposes a 24.705 acre expansion of a 17.78 acre sand and gravel mine, to 42.485 acres, on the west side of Guyanoga Road in the Town of Jerusalem, Yates County, on property totaling 42.485 acres.  The mine site is bordered on the east by Guyanoga Road, on the north by Champlin Road, and on the south by a tributary of Sugar Creek.

Operation of the mine will continue the previous surface extraction of sand and gravel, with crushing and screening material processing, into the adjacent expansion area. Mining is not proposed for below the local water table.  Excavation will be by front end loaders, backhoes, and bulldozers, and will remove approximately 538,000 cubic yards of sand and gravel from the site over the estimated 30 year operational life of the mine. The maximum truck traffic from mining operations has been estimated by the applicant to be 4 round trips per hour.  Hours of operation will continue to be Monday through Friday from 6 AM until 6 PM with no mining on weekends or holidays.

Final reclamation is proposed to partially restore the site to forest and partially to meadow.  Part of the site will also continue to be used for Town Highway Department operations.  Reclamation will include the replacement of stockpiled topsoil 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 Jerusalem.
