Notice of Acceptance of Draft EIS and Public Hearing
Broome County - The Broome County Legislature, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (DSEIS) on the proposed Broome County landfill, Section IV, entrance evaluation. A public hearing on the DSEIS will be held on June 20, 2007 at 7:00 p.m. at the Town of Chenango Community Hall, 1529 NYS Rte 12, Binghamton, NY. Written comments on the DSEIS will be accepted until July 18, 2007. The purpose of the DSEIS is to re-evaluate the entrance to the Broome County Landfill Section IV, located north of Dunham Hill Road and to propose possible improvements such as an underpass/overpass on Dunham Hill Road; a driveway off Dunham Hill Road with a cueing area for trucks, a scalehouse, inbound and outbound scales, and customer convenience area for refuse disposal; or an improved at grade crossing. The DSEIS identifies environmental impacts and mitigation measures for those impacts, as related to relevant transportation and operational issues. Copies of the Draft SEIS are available for review at the Broome County Public Library, the Legislative Clerk's Office, on-line at http://www.gobroomecounty.com/dpw/DPWLandfill.php or by contacting the Broome County Division of Solid Waste Management at 778-2250.
