Notice of Acceptance of Draft EIS and Public Comment Period

Niagara County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Redland Quarries NY Inc. - Lockport Quarry Expansion. Written comments on the Draft EIS will be accepted until November 17, 2017. The Draft EIS is available at the NYS DEC - Region 9 Office, 270 Michigan Avenue, Buffalo, NY 14203; the Lockport Town Hall, 6560 Dysinger Road, Lockport, NY and on line at: www.lockportquarry.com. A Compact Disc (CD) copy of the Draft EIS is also available at the Lockport Public Library, 23 East Avenue, Lockport, NY.

The action involves an approximately 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 proposed excavation areas are 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 proposed quarry expansion is located on Hinman Road in the Town of Lockport, New York.
