Positive Declaration

Cortland County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Cortlandville Sand and Gravel Mine may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The action involves a proposal by the applicant for a vertical expansion of an existing mine that would include (1) mining sand and gravel up to 100 feet below the local water table, (2) a lateral expansion of 10.1 acres south/southeast of the current life-of-mine (LOM) area, and (3) the removal of 0.4 acres of unaffected land in the northwest. The final LOM acreage would be 76.5 acres on approximately 120 acres of land. The mine would continue to operate as a traditional sand and gravel mine with standard mechanical equipment used to excavate the deposit. A final reclamation plan is proposed to restore the site to a 52.4 acre pond with an open water surface, along with graded and revegetated slopes. The project is located at 765 State Route 13 in the Town of Cortlandville. New York.
