Wayne County

Applicant: Larry C Arliss
Facility: Arliss Sand & Gravel Pit
Brown Rd
Galen, NY 14433
Application ID: 8-5424-00002/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is Located: Galen, Wayne County
Project Description:
The Department has received a Mined Land Reclamation application from Arliss Sand and Gravel for expansion of the Arliss Sand and Gravel - Brown Road Pit.  The applicant proposes to add 5 acres to the existing 28 acre life of mine (LOM) area.  A total of 5 acres will be affected by mining operations during the next 5 year permit term.  13 acres of the LOM area have been approved as reclaimed by the Department.  Excavation will be below the local water table in the 5 acre expansion area, and will create a pond for final site reclamation.  The project site is located on the Roger and Larry Arliss property on both sides of Brown Road, approximately 900 feet south of Lockpit Road, in the Town of Galen.  The 5 acre expansion area borders the east side of Brown Road, and is west of the 100 foot wide adjacent area around Class 2 Freshwater Wetland SA-27.

Operations in the expansion area will continue surface extraction of sand and gravel. Excavation will be by bulldozer and tracked excavator, with a drag line for excavation below water.  Operations will remove approximately 163,000 cubic yards of sand and gravel from the 5 acre expansion area.  Material will be processed on site as permitted previously.  Maximum truck traffic estimated by the applicant will be 40 round trips per hour for brief periods during the construction season, with the average traffic being 4 round trips per hour.  Final reclamation will create a pond on most of the expansion area, with stockpiled topsoil replaced and seeded on the remainder of the site around the pond.  Hours of operation will remain Monday through Saturday from 7 AM until 5 PM, as needed, with no operations on Sundays.

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 Galen.
