Facility: Birdseye Hollow State Forest
Rt 96|BIRDSEYE Hollow Rd
Bradford, NY 14810
Application ID: 8-4626-00002/00005
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is Located: Bradford, Steuben County
Project Description:
The Department has received an application from the Bath Office of the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation for a new 2.25 acre sand and gravel mine on a 3446 acre property in the Town of Bradford known as the Birdseye Hollow State Forest.  The mine site is located on the west side of Aulls Road, approximately 800 feet north of NYS Route 226, and is a former mine site, affected by mining operations prior to 1975.  Excavation by mechanical equipment is proposed to remove approximately 156,000 tons of sand and gravel over a 15 year operational life.  Material will be processed on site by dry screening and stockpiled for loading onto trucks.  The DEC Bath Office has estimated truck traffic from hauling operations to vary from zero to a peak of 40 truck trips per day.

Mining operations are proposed that will excavate below the local water table, and will enlarge a small existing pond on the site.  Plans show grades that will retain storm water runoff within the mined area and allow infiltration into the soil.  No off site discharges are proposed.  There are no NY State regulated streams or freshwater wetlands within the mine area, although it borders the 100 foot wide adjacent area of Class 4 Freshwater Wetland SV-4.

Hours of operation proposed are weekdays from 7 AM until 5 PM, with no operations on Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays unless material is needed for a flood emergency.  Final reclamation to a fishing pond with public access is proposed, and will include the replacement of stockpiled topsoil around the enlarged pond, 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 Bradford.
