ENB - Region 7 Notices 10/19/2016

Negative Declaration

Broome County - The Broome County Legislature, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Design Change on Broome County Landfill will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. In order to gain more air space for the placement of solid waste at the Broome County Landfill, the design of Section IV, Cell 4 is being revised to lower the subgrade of the liner system by 15 feet. This change will bring the base of Cell 4 down to a similar elevation as Cells 1-3.This change does not increase waste acceptance rates or alter the conceptual design for the gravitational flow of leachate to the on-site pretreatment plant. Increasing airspace in this manner extends the life of the landfill and generates additional revenue, which supports the goals and mission of the Broome County Division of Solid Waste Management. The project is located at 286 Knapp Road in Binghamton, New York.
