Reducing our impact on
Peckham’s commitment to reducing our environmental impact is evidenced by the company’s strict adherence to the rules and guidelines of numerous governmental bodies charged with protecting our natural resources, including:
- New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (permits focus on air emissions, mining, storm water discharge, wetlands and petroleum storage)
- United States Environmental Protection Agency (response plans for petroleum storage facilities, spill prevention control and countermeasure plans)
- United States Coast Guard (operation plans, terminal security plans and spill response plans for petroleum storage facilities)
- Federal Highway Administration & State Department of Transportation (regulations governing our drivers and trucks)
In addition to following all guidelines and regulations, we are proud of our proactive efforts to engage in reclamation projects to restore mined areas to a natural habitat.
Case Study: Pleasant Valley Site Enhancements
Peckham Industries acquired our Pleasant Valley location in 2012. Since then, we’ve made many improvements. In 2018, a newly cleared area adjacent to North Avenue was improved with a natural-looking vegetated berm planted with various native species. This site enhancement, with safety, sound, and aesthetic benefits, is part of the environmental stewardship and community service ethic that Peckham Industries strives to incorporate in all its locations. See our Pleasant Valley website for updated information or read the site enhancement project report with additional visuals.
Mining is defined as temporary land use to be followed by subsequent land use compatible with the surrounding landscape.
