Positive Declaration and Public Scoping

Niagara County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Redland Quarries N.Y., Inc. - Lockport Quarry Proposed Expansion may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. Written comments on the draft scope will be accepted until January 8, 2016. A public scoping session will be held on December 9, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. at the Best Western Hotel, 515 South Transit Road, Lockport, New York 14094.

The action involves a 243.4 acre expansion of the Lockport Quarry, including mining of land (approximately 220.9 acres of excavation) and overburden berm (approximately 22.5 acres) storage areas. The new excavation areas are proposed on the south side of Hinman Road in the Town of Lockport across from the existing quarry. The overburden will be stockpiled in protective noise/visual berms along quarry perimeters. The proposed reclamation plan is to create two lakes to provide recreational opportunities and wildlife habitat. The proposed quarry expansion would extend the life of mine for approximately 40 years. The project is located on Hinman Road in the Town of Lockport, New York.
