Permits(s) Applied for: 1 – Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is located: in COEYMANS in ALBANY COUNTY
LafargeHolcim has applied for a Mined Land permit renewal and is proposing to modify the currently approved Reclamation Plan by altering the reclamation grading and objective for the 12-acre “life-of-mine” (LOM) area. The LOM area is located directly east of US Route 9W and adjacent to the main plant’s north entrance road and consists of soil and rock stockpiles. Soil stockpiles originated from construction of the new cement plant and crusher fines (rock) piles originated from the production of aggregate at the mine. The current reclamation objective for the LOM area consists of grading the area flat, covering it with six (6) inches of crushed stone and allowing it to be used for parking and/or storage. The new goal is to eliminate this area’s existing stockpiled materials, grade it flat, add six (6) inches of topsoil and return the area to natural meadow vegetation.
