ENB - Region 8 Notices 9/5/2012
Notice of Acceptance of Final EIS
Ontario County - Ontario County, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Ontario County Landfill - Proposed Landfill Expansion. The Final EIS is available from all of the Ontario County Libraries, the Ontario County Planning Department at 20 Ontario Street, Canandaigua, NY and on line at: http://www.co.ontario.ny.us.
The action involves an expansion of the existing Phase III (Stages VIII and IX) landfill and associated support facilities, including soil borrow area. The proposed expansion project will require additional land acquisition to the existing property in support of borrow area operations. The proposed expansion project will be located within the 389 acres currently owned by Ontario County with the exception of soil borrow activities, which will require the acquisition of an additional land parcel situated south of the landfill property.
This expansion of the existing Phase III landfill is proposed in accordance with the Operations Management Lease (OML) Agreement between Ontario County and site operator Casella. The Stage VIII (Wrap-around) expansion will include the construction of new cells totaling approximately 16.0 acres around the northern and western boundaries of the Phase III landfill. The Stage IX (Eastern) expansion will be located as named, adjacent to the eastern boundary of the Phase III landfill, covering approximately 27.5 acres including the area currently approved as a borrow area for soils. Additional site modifications include the relocation or modification of two stormwater ponds, the leachate storage lagoon, Ontario County Landfill's maintenance facility, and site access roads.
A public comment period has been established from August 24, 2012 through October 4, 2012.
The project is located at 3555 Post Farm Road in Stanley, Town of Seneca, New York.
