Permit(s) Applied for:
Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management
Project is Located:
Seneca, Ontario County
Ontario County, in conjunction with the leasee of the Ontario County Landfill, Casella Waste Services of Ontario, LLC, proposes to create a 9.9 acre soil borrow area to obtain soil for daily cover and other landfill uses associated with the existing and/or currently permitted (to be constructed) landfill cells. The borrow area would be located directly east of Post Farm Road and west of County Road 5, in an area currently used for soil stockpiling and screening. The applicant proposes monitoring and augmentation of flows to the adjacent Freshwater Wetland ST-6 to ensure that the wetland hydrologic regime is not adversely affected, therefore an Article 24 (Freshwater Wetland) is not required. The file is available for review and comment at the NYSDEC Region 8 office in Avon.
