ENB - Region 1 Notices
Suffolk County - The Town Board of the Town of Babylon, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Town of Babylon Southern Ashfill Vertical and Lateral Expansion will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the proposal of the lateral and vertical expansion of the Town of Babylon Southern Ashfill - Cell 7 at the Town of Babylon Solid Waste Management Facilities (TOBSWMF's). The proposal includes the reclamation of the on-site recharge basin by backfilling with recycled concrete aggregate (RCA) for the lateral expansion of the Southern Ashfill's Cell 7. The expansion will increase the Ashfill capacity of the TOBSWMF's by approximately 1,000,000 cubic yards. The construction will include a double-composite liner system over the Cell 7 area, two-tiered reinforced soil walls along the perimeter of Cell 7 followed by a third upper wall for the vertical expansion over the new Ashfill (Cell 7) and the existing Southern Ashfill, and a final cover system over all areas of expanded ash placement. The project also includes a comprehensive stormwater management system that uses a combination of two off-site recharge basins and underground leaching pools to handle runoff from the site and immediate surrounding areas. The project is located at the Town of Babylon Solid Waste Management Facilities at Gleam Street and Edison Avenue in West Babylon, Town of Babylon, New York.
