Project Description:
Hakes C&D Disposal Inc. (Hakes) is proposing an expansion of the Hakes C&D Debris Landfill (Landfill) located at 4376 Manning Ridge Road in the Town of Campbell, Steuben County, New York, from 57.9 acres to 80 acres to increase the disposal capacity and site life. Hakes is also proposing to add a 22.4-acre soil borrow area at the same site for construction and cover materials. The project will include the expansion of other ancillary facilities, including the storm water ponds and site roads. The Landfill's approved design capacity of 1,494 tons per day and the maximum elevation will not change.

The project also involves zoning action by Town of Campbell to establish a Non-Residential Planned Development District allowing solid waste disposal facilities/uses within the district, and Town Planning Board Site Plan Review of the proposed landfill expansion. The project sponsor has filed an application with the Town of Campbell for site plan review and rezoning as a Non-Residential Planned Development, Application 2017-01.

The project sponsor has not yet filed New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) permit applications, but the project will require modifications of the facility's existing 6 NYCRR Part 360 Solid Waste Management Permit (DEC No. 8-4630-00010/00001) and 6 NYCRR Part 201 Air State Facility permit (DEC No. 8-4630-00010/00011). These applications will be received in the future and will be the subject of a future public comment period at a time to be determined.

State Environmental Quality Review (SEQR):
The project is a Type I Action, as designated by 6 NYCRR § 617.4(b)(6)(i). DEC, acting as Lead Agency pursuant to SEQR, issued a Positive Declaration and Draft Scoping Document on April 3, 2017. The Scoping Document was finalized on August 2, 2017. A draft supplemental environmental impact statement (DSEIS) was accepted for public review and comment on January 10, 2018. As noted further below, written public comments will be accepted on the DSEIS until February 26, 2018. In addition, pursuant to 6 NYCRR § 617.9(a)(4), DEC has determined to hold a public hearing to accept comments on the DSEIS, the details of which are provided below in the legislative public hearing section of this notice.

Additional Regulatory Provisions:
State Historic Preservation Act (SHPA) Determination: Based on a review of project information, the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation has determined that the project will have no impact on cultural resources in or eligible for inclusion in the State and National Registers of Historic Places. In accordance with SHPA, no further review is required.

Environmental Justice: This project is not located within or near a potential environmental justice area designated by the DEC and, therefore, it has been determined that the proposed action is not subject to the DEC Commissioner's policy on Environmental Justice (CP-29).
