An online version of the FEIS is available on the following website: http://www.co.chautauqua.ny.us/landfill/VerticalExpansion/VerticalExpansion.htm. The action involves a 33 acre, 100 foot high vertical expansion over the existing 81 acre landfill. The remainder of the existing landfill footprint will be unchanged. The proposed height of the facility will increase from the current design elevation of 1,750 feet to 1,850 feet. The proposal will extend the life of the landfill by about approximately 4 years.
