ENB Region 8 Completed Applications 05/30/2007

Chemung County

Applicant:

Chemung County
PO Box 588
Elmira, NY 14902 -0588

Facility:

Chemung County Landfill
4349 Co Rte 60
Elmira, NY 14901

Application ID:

8-0728-00004/00013

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management

Project is Located:

Chemung, Chemung County

Project Description:

The Department has received an application for the modification of the above referenced solid waste management facility permit for the Chemung County Municipal Solid Waste landfill located on County Route 60 in the Town of Chemung. The applicant proposes to increase the waste acceptance rate by 49% and to establish an approved design capacity for the landfill of 700 tons per day. In accordance with 6 NYCRR 360-1.8(e)(1)(ii), for facilities without an approved design capacity, an increase of less than 50% of the total quantity of solid waste received during the comparable quarter of the preceding year is considered a minor modification. This proposed permit modification does not involve any change to the permitted and approved landfill footprint, approved final elevation or hours of operation. No significant increases in noise, odor, air emissions, or traffic are anticipated, therefore the Chemung County Legislature issued a negative declaration representing a determination that there will be no significant adverse environmental impact as a result of this proposed tonnage increase.

The modification request seeks to increase the quarterly maximum limit from 40,000 to 54,600 tons per quarter and the annual maximum limit from 120,000 tons to 180,000 tons per year of waste received at the landfill. Per 360-1.8(e)(1)(ii) the proposed quarterly tonnage increase is based on the amount of waste received in the four quarters preceding the submission of the application for permit modification. The increase of 14,600 tons per quarter is less than a 50% increase in the amount of waste received in the lowest of the four quarters previous to the submission of the application (30,228.68 tons - 1st quarter 2006).

As defined in 6 NYCRR 360-1.2(b)(8), approved design capacity is the average daily tonnage to be received at the solid waste management facility during the quarter in which the most waste is anticipated to be received, as approved by the Department. The current permit allows the facility to receive up to 40,000 tons of waste per quarter. An additional 14,600 tons per quarter would increase this to 54,600 tons per quarter. Assuming 78 days of landfill operation per quarter, the design capacity, by definition, would be 700 tons per day.

The Department has made a tentative determination to approve this application. As a tentative determination, the Department is seeking public comment prior to making a final decision on permit issuance. Although a public notice is not normally issued for a minor permit modification, the Department is exercising its discretion pursuant to 6 NYCRR 621.7(g) and 621.11(h)(3) to require a public notice and comment period for this proposed tonnage increase due to the known public interest in this project.

Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management

Project is Located:

Bath, Steuben County

Project Description:

The Department has made a tentative determination to approve an application for a 360 permit modification for construction and operation of a composting facility to treat dewatered wastewater treatment plant biosolids from 11 New York facilities and 4 Pennsylvania facilities to be located next to the existing facility at Bonny Road site in the Town of Cameron. The approved design capacity for the compost facility will be 3,800 dry tons per day. The compost will be landapplied on the fields fields which are permitted in the current permit. The facility will be land applying compost rather than the high water content biosolids therefore, the fields will receive less volume and have less potential for runoff. The file is available for review and comment at the NYSDEC Region 8 office.
