Niagara County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Tri-C, Incorporated, Kroening Pond Clay Mine will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves excavation of approximately 93,000 cubic yards of clay and excess topsoil from a 6.2 acre surface unconsolidated mine over the estimated 3 year life of the mine. Excavation will occur with the use of front end loaders and/or backhoes, with clay being placed into single and double axle dump trucks for removal from the site. The clay mining will occur as an open pit operation, excavated to a depth of 8 to 12 feet below grade. Topsoil required for reclamation of the site will be temporarily stockpiled to the east and west of the proposed mine area. Excess topsoil will be removed from the site. Upon completion of excavation, the clay mine will be reclaimed to a 6.2 acre recreational pond with an average depth of approximately 7 feet. Whenever possible, reclamation will be concurrent with excavation. The project is located on property owned by Albert Kroening at 3165 Lockport Road. The pond site is located approximately mile north of the junction of Nash Road with Lockport Road.
