“Request for Scenic River Permit on the Amite River
The Secretary of the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) as Administrator of the Louisiana Natural and Scenic Rivers System is currently considering the application of Aggregate Reclaimers, LLC for a permit to operate an existing sand and gravel mining operation on the Amite River. The proposal also includes the discharge of processed water from the pits, when applicable. The decision to grant or deny this permit in the public interest will be based on an evaluation of the probable impacts of the proposed activity on the Amite River.
Copies of the application can be reviewed by the public at the LDWF main office, Room 432, 2000 Quail Drive, Baton Rouge, LA and at the District Office nearest the proposed activity. The application can also be viewed on the LDWF website at www.wlf.louisiana.gov/scenic-rivers. The public is invited to comment on this permit request for a period of forty-five (45) days. Responses should convey sound reasoning for or against the proposal and be mailed to LDWF Scenic Rivers Program, P.O. Box 98000, Baton Rouge, LA 70898-9000.”
