Syracuse Sand & Gravel Mining Pit on Route 20.
Syracuse Sand & Gravel (SSG) has submitted a Mining Permit Modification application for the Sennett Pit (a.k.a. East Side Pit).
Based upon recent test drilling at the Sennett Pit, SSG plans to mine roughly 50± feet deeper at the site below the current pit floor elevation of approximately elevation 894 feet. The present mine plan indicates the proposed final pond floor elevation to be at elevation 867 when reclaimed. SSG plans to revise this final mine floor (i.e. pond floor) figure to elevation 844 feet. There are no other proposed changes to the operational methods or plans.
Comments are due in the Town Clerk’s office no later than Monday, March 28, 2022.
