Erie County - The Department Of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Buffalo Crushed Stone Inc. Wehrle Drive Quarry Consolidation will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The proposed action is the combination of two adjacent, separately permitted, mining areas into one quarry and the enlargement of the quarry by approximately 16 acres through the excavation of the former Conrail right-of-way which presently physically separates the two quarries. The reclamation objective is a reservoir and upland. The project is located within the area bounded by Harris Hill Road, Wehrle Drive, Barton Road and the New York State Thruway in the Towns of Clarence and Lancaster.
