Facility: Carl G Anderegg Mine
Sly Hill Rd - W of Town Line
Western, NY 13419
Application ID: 6-3066-00002/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is Located: Oneida County
Project Description:
The applicant proposes to modify their existing 47.1 acre surface sand and gravel mine to add an additional 4.3 acres to the life of mine boundary within a 77.3 acre parcel easterly of Sly Hill Road.  The project site is on property owned by Carl Andregg and is located 500 feet east of Sly Hill Road, 1,000 feet north of the Stokes - Westernville Road.  The mine will continue to operate as a traditional surface extraction of sand and gravel from the site.  Mining is not proposed for below the local water table.  Excavation will be done by mechanical equipment, standard for sand and gravel mining operations.  Mining is proposed to remove approximately 80,000 cubic yards of aggregate sand and gravel from this 4.3 acre addition over the remaining operational life of the mine.  Material will be stockpiled as unprocessed “run-of-bank”, or processed with portable screens and crushers. Maximum processing rates for the screen and crushing operations will exceed 150 tons-per-hour (TPH) and the necessary air source permits have been applied for.  Final reclamation will restore the site to 51.4 acres of open space meadow.  Reclamation will include the replacement of stockpiled topsoil, and re-seeding with an approved USDA SCS seed mixture.  The total reviewed life-of-mine area is 51.4 (LOM) acres.
