Seneca County - Seneca County, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed County Route 318 Corridor Sewer Improvement District will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the installation of sanitary sewer conveyances within the existing right-of-way along NYS Route 318 between NYS Route 414 on the east and Grange Hall Road on the west. In addition, the project involves the installation of sewer force main along the NYS Thruway eastbound right of way from Nine Foot Road to the Junius Ponds Service Area. The collection system will connect to the existing wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) operated by the New York State Thruway Authority (NYSTA). The NYSTA WWTP will be decommissioned and wastewater flows from the Service Area will be conveyed to the proposed Route 318 collection system. The majority of the proposed work is within the Town of Junius, with some work located in the Town of Tyre.

A new County Sewer District will also be formed in accordance with Article 5-A of County Law to facilitate construction, operation and maintenance, and administration of the proposed NYS Route 318 conveyances. The proposed district boundary is generally bound by the NYS Route 318 highway right-of way between the existing Town of Tyre Sewer District No. 1 on the east and the intersection of Grange Hall Road on the west. Further, the proposed County Sewer District would encompass the Waterloo Outlet Mall parcel only, which is currently included in the Town of Junius Sewer District. The Waterloo Outlet Mall would therefore be the only user within the County Sewer District. Sanitary wastewater will be conveyed to the Town of Seneca Falls' WWTP for treatment. The NYSTA will convey flows from the Junius Ponds Service area to the County Sewer District as an outside user.

The project is located in the Towns of Junius and Tyre, New York, along State Route 318, bounded by Grange Hall Road on the west and State Route 414 on the east.

Positive Declaration and Public Comment Period

Steuben County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Hakes Construction and Demolition (C&D) Landfill Expansion may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. Written comments on the draft scope will be accepted until 4:45 p.m. on May 5, 2017. A copy of the SEQR positive declaration and draft scoping document may be viewed at the NYS DEC - Region 8 Office in Avon during normal business hours by calling the contact person below. Electronic copies of the SEQR positive declaration and draft EIS scoping document may also be obtained by request to the contact person listed below.

The action involves a proposal by Hakes C&D Disposal Inc. to expand its existing landfill located at 4376 Manning Ridge Road in the Town of Campbell, New York. The project would add approximately 22.1 acres to the existing 57.9 acres of permitted Landfill cell area used for the disposal of construction and demolition debris (C&D). It would also include a new on-site soil borrow area of approximately 24.0 acres, from which soils would be excavated for Landfill construction and operation.

Hakes is not seeking an increase in the existing maximum permitted Landfill height; the existing maximum elevation of 1,829 feet (site datum) would remain unchanged. The type of wastes being received at the facility are also not proposed to change. In addition, the approved design capacity of the Landfill, which is 1,494 tons per day (TPD), would not change. Landfill operation would be extended approximately 5 to 10 years, depending upon the waste volume received in any given year.
