CALX Barge Terminal
Tennessee River, Livingston County, Kentucky
TVA issued a finding of no significant impact (FONSI) on February 9, 2011, for a proposal by CALX Resources to construct a barge loading facility that would support a proposed limestone quarry at Tennessee River Mile 19.5 (north bank) near Calvert City, Kentucky. CALX proposes to construct two loading facilities (i.e., a fixed conveyor load-out facility and a truck load-out facility) and as many as eight mooring cells and/or dolfins. Because the proposed quarry would impact slightly over 13 acres of jurisdictional wetlands, CALX proposes to compensate for these effects by implementing appropriate in-kind wetland mitigation. CALX also proposes to deposit fill material associated with linear transportation crossings. These actions require permits from the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) under Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899 and Section 404 of the Clean Water Act as well as approval from TVA under Section 26a of the TVA Act.
USACE evaluated the potential environmental effects of the applicant’s proposed actions and prepared an environmental assessment (EA) to document findings. TVA has adopted the USACE EA. The TVA FONSI is presented below.
