The proposed action involves the expansion of the Akron Quarry, including mining of new areas of land (which is approximately 90.3 acres of excavation) and overburden storage areas (approximately 20.9 acres) adjacent to the existing approved mining area. The total acreage included in this application but not previously approved is 111.2 acres. The new excavation areas will be along Crittenden and Schurr Roads (15.4 acres) in the Town of Newstead and along the east side of the quarry (74.9 acres) in the Town of Pembroke. In addition, the overburden will be stockpiled on either side of Scribner Road (20.9 acres) in the Town of Pembroke. The modification request also includes the realignment of Cohocton and Scribner Roads in the Town of Pembroke to allow the quarry expansion. The proposed reclamation plan is the creation of lakes with perimeter green space and is similar to the existing reclamation plan. The proposed quarry expansion would extend the life of mine for an estimated 25 years.

* Special note for hunters: most hunting zones do not align with DEC's regional boundaries, so you won't find hunting seasons listed in the regional calendars. Use the statewide calendar instead.

This calendar provides a listing of all DEC-sponsored events that are open to the public. You can click on any event in the calendar to view additional details about the event. Note that the events at environmental education centers will only display in the region in which they are located, even though they serve residents from adjacent areas. We welcome people with disabilities to all of our programs. Please call the contact number ahead of time to let us know your specific needs and we will be happy to learn how we can best serve you.

We would appreciate receiving feedback from our users. Please let us know if you encounter any difficulties viewing or using this calendar by sending an email to the DEC webmaster.
