Chemung County

Applicant: Town of Southport
1139 Pennsylvannia Ave
Elmira, NY 14904 -2520
Facility: Southport -T Gravel Pit
Sagetown Rd
Southport, NY 14904
Application ID: 8-0736-00022/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is Located: Southport, Chemung County
Project Description:
The Department has received a Mined Land Reclamation from the Town of Southport for a modification of the reclamation plans for the Town’s Southport Gravel Mine.  The previous permit, issued October 6, 1999 for a 7.98 acre Life of Mine area, was based on reclamation plans that called for the site to be converted to re-vegetated open space. The Town now proposes to reclaim approximately half of the Life of Mine area by topsoil replacement, seeding, and tree planting, while continuing to use the remaining half for material stockpiling in support of Town Highway Department operations.  Due to unsuitability of the material on the site, mining operations will cease, with stockpile material to be brought to the site from other sources.  The permit proposed will authorize site reclamation only.

The project site is located on the northeast side of Sagetown Road, northwest of the Kinner Hill Road intersection, in the Town of Southport, Chemung County.

Post reclamation operations on the site will continue stockpiling operations.  The peak truck traffic is estimated by the applicant to be 30 round trips per day.

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 Southport.
