Dayton Mining Facility

Wilson Environmental Technologies, now part of Davey Resource Group, was contracted by Gernatt Asphalt Products, Inc. to design a freshwater “hemi-marsh” within an existing dredge mining lake.

Project Narrative:

Wilson Environmental Technologies (WET)—now part of Davey Resource Group, Inc. (DRG)—was contracted by Gernatt Asphalt Products, Inc. (Gernatt) to design a freshwater “hemi-marsh” within an existing dredge mining lake at the Countryside Sand and Gravel in the Town of Dayton, New York. Material used in the marsh construction consisted of clean overburden earthen material harvested from the sand and gravel mining operation. The overburden material was placed into the existing mining lake to achieve a depth suitable for establishing a robust emergent and deepwater habitat, conducive to future nursery, nesting, rearing, feeding, and escape cover for fish, amphibians, birds, and wildlife that thrive in wetland complexes near other habitats. The project was monitored for six years and deemed compliant with all applicable Section 404 permit conditions by the USACE Buffalo District. Furthermore, the project site was used as a demonstration project by the USACE for a regional mitigation interagency conference.
