Positive Declaration And Public Scoping

Orleans County - The New York State Department Of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Frontier Stone, LLC, Frontier Stone Quarry, Fletcher Chapel Road ( DEC 8-3436-00033/00001-MLR 80823) may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. A public scoping session will be held on Tuesday, the 27th of June at 7:00 p.m., in the Shelby Town Hall on 4062 Salt Works Road in Medina, New York. Written comments on the scope will be received until 14 July 2006. The action involves the development of a 215.5 acre dolomite/limestone quarry on a 269.45 acre parcel. The excavation area totals 174.1 acres and mining is divided into four phases over the estimated 75 year operational life of the facility. Quarrying will be conducted by standard drill and blast technology with front end loaders feeding an in-pit primary crusher with shot rock from the muck pile. The primary crusher will follow the advancing face. Rock will be conveyed to the processing plant at the land surface by conveyor for further processing. Mining will occur below the water table and the project includes dewatering. Wash water used in the processing facility will be drawn from groundwater and surface water accumulating in the pit and recirculated for reuse. Settling ponds will be located in the plant area; no offsite discharge will occur from these ponds. The site will be reclaimed by grading, replacement of topsoil, revegetating upland areas with an approved seed mix, and the creation of two lakes. The lakes, separated by the existing utility line, are approximately 38.9 and 161.2 acres. The first 50 feet of shoreline below the water surface will be less than 5 feet deep. The reclamation objective will be to create recreational lakes/wildlife habitat. A draft scoping outline has been prepared and is available for public review and comment. A scoping meeting will be held to solicit involved agency and citizen input and review the draft scoping outline. The proposed mining site is approximately 3.7 miles south of Medina, and is located south of Fletcher Chapel Road and bounded generally by Sour Spring Road on the west and South Wood Road on the east. The facility is located in the Town of Shelby, Orleans County.
