Fulton County - Adirondack Park Agency Project 2000-299, Scott Baldwin [d/b/a/ Northville Septic Service]

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN pursuant to Section 809 of the Adirondack Park Agency Act (Article 27 of the Executive Law) and 9 NYCRR Part 580 that the Adirondack Park Agency will commence a public hearing on December 6, 2001, in the town offices of the Town of Northampton, Fulton County on an application filed by Scott Baldwin d/b/a/ Northville Septic Service. The applicant seeks Agency approval for a waste disposal area on land designated as Tax Map Parcel 18-2-1.111, accessed from Maple Grove Road in the Town of Northampton. Waste disposal in this area is a Class A regional project.

The project site is a 71-acre parcel of land classified as Rural Use by the Official Adirondack Park Land Use and Development Plan Map. The applicant proposes to use approximately 15 acres of the site to dispose 500,000 gallons of septage collected annually from residential septic tanks and holding tanks. Septage will be incorporated into the soil by subsurface injection and will be stored in two lined lagoons during the winter and rainfall. Disposal will take place year-round on weekdays.

Potential project impacts anticipated to be considered at the hearing include (1) odor, (2) ground water and surface water quality, (3) stormwater/septage run-off, (4) compatibility with adjacent residences, and (5) alternative disposal methods.

The applicant earlier held an Agency permit authorizing the disposal of septage by storage in unlined lagoons on the same site; that permit expired on August 9, 2000.

The hearing will commence at 10 a.m. with an informal public comment session during which any interested person may speak. Written comments or questions may be submitted to the Agency prior to and during the hearing. All written comments submitted to date will be offered as hearing exhibits. Any person (other than landowners within 500 feet of the project site and certain government entities who are already entitled to party status) desiring to become a formal party to the hearing in order to present evidence and cross-examine witnesses must comply with the procedure set forth in Section 580.7 of Agency regulations by filing a proper petition with the Agency. Persons entitled to party status waive that entitlement if they fail to attend the hearing, except for good cause shown.

Pursuant to Section 301(2) of the State Administrative Procedure Act, interpreter services will be made available to deaf persons at no charge upon written request to the Agency within a reasonable time prior to the hearing.

The informal hearing will likely be followed by a pre-hearing (issues) conference. Participants will include the applicant, Agency staff members, and any other persons and state agencies which are, or which seek to be, parties to the hearing. The parties may discuss hearing procedures, the issues to be considered at the hearing, proposed exhibits and witnesses, and petitions for party status. This conference is also open to the public.

The project application file is available for review and copying by the public during normal business hours at Agency office on Route 86 in Ray Brook, in accordance with the Freedom of Information Law. A copy of the application can also be reviewed at the office of the Town Clerk, Town of Northampton. For further information, contact the Project Review Officer, John L. Quinn, or the undersigned, at Box 99, Ray Brook, New York 12977 or telephone (518) 891-4050. A copy of this notice is being mailed to all landowners within 500 feet of the project site, based on a list compiled by the applicant from the latest completed tax assessment roll. The notice is also being mailed to individuals who expressed an interest and to certain state agencies and local officials.
