A public hearing on the Draft SEIS will be held on September 27, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. at the Watkins Glen High School Auditorium, 301 12th Street, Watkins Glen, NY 14891. The Applicant will be available for a public information session in the auditorium prior to the start of the hearing from 6:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m., to answer questions about the Project from the public.

Copies of the Draft SEIS are available at the NYS DEC - Region 8 Office, the Reading Town Hall, the Watkins Glen Public Library and on line at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/permits/71619.html and www.FingerLakesLPGStorage.com.
The action involves a proposal by Finger Lakes LPG Storage, LLC to construct and operate a new underground Liquid Propane Gas (LPG) storage facility for the storage and distribution of propane and butane on a portion of a 576 acre site. The storage facility will utilize existing caverns in the Syracuse salt formation created by US Salt and its predecessors' salt production operations. As proposed, a maximum of 2.10 million barrels (88.20 million gallons) of LPG will be stored in these caverns seasonally, displacing some of the brine currently filling them, and will be withdrawn by displacement of propane by brine when demand occurs during the heating season and displacement of butane by brine during the gasoline blending season. During storage operations, the brine displaced by LPG will be stored and contained in a 14 acre double-lined surface impoundment with a capacity of 2.19 million barrels (91.98 million gallons) on property east of the junction of Routes 14 and 14A. The facility will connect to the existing TEPPCO LPG interstate pipeline, and will ship LPG by truck via NYS Routes 14/14A and rail via the existing Norfolk & Southern Railroad. As proposed, the project involves construction of a new rail and truck LPG transfer facility, consisting of a 6 rail siding capable of allowing loading/unloading of 24 rail cars within 12 hours, and a truck loading station capable of loading 4 trucks per hour. The rail/truck loading facility is capable of being operated on a 24 hour basis 365 days a year. Construction will also include surface works consisting of truck and rail loading terminals, LPG storage tanks, offices and other distribution facilities, and stormwater control structures.
The project is located on NYS Routes 14 and 14A west of Seneca Lake in the Town of Reading, New York.
