Wyoming County - The Eagle Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Bliss Water System Improvements Ė Project Modification will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The Town of Eagle has proposed to modify the Bliss water system improvement project in response to comments received from the NYS Department of Health (DOH) upon that agencyís review of the project construction drawings and specifications. DOH expressed concerns about the susceptibility of the existing backup well to potential contamination and recommended that the existing backup well be decommissioned and a new backup well be developed in another location. The Town of Eagle has proposed to develop the new backup well in close proximity to the new water reservoir. The activities associated with the project modification included: decommissioning the existing backup well and demolishing the well house, developing a new backup well, and constructing the transmission line to connect the new well to the water reservoir. A chlorinator will be installed in the water reservoir operational building to chlorinate the water that comes from the new backup well. This project modification will significantly reduce the potential for the contamination of the water systemís backup source water. There is no street address for the site which is located in the Town of Eagle immediately west of the Hamlet of Bliss.

Notice of Acceptance of Final EIS

Niagara County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Modern Landfill Expansion. The proposed action would allow Modern to expand its landfill footprint from approximately 117 acres to 232 acres and increase the maximum permitted height of the landfill from 416 feet above mean sea level using the National Geodetic Vertical Datum established in 1929 (416 feet NGVD 29) to 476 feet NGVD 29.

As part of the proposed action, Modern has also requested an increase in the approved design capacity from 2,383 tons per day to 2,636 tons per day. The annual waste receipt rate will be limited to 615,000 tons per year consistent with the 1999 Host Community Agreement between the Town of Lewiston and Modern (1999 HCA).

The proposed lateral expansion of Modern Landfill will require the excavation of approximately 92,000 cubic yards of waste from the adjacent 10 to 15-acre unlined Town of Lewiston dump. Waste excavated from the Town of Lewiston dump will be transported to Modernís state-of-the-art landfill facility over landfill access roadways and disposed of in one of Modernís existing double-composite lined landfill cells.

The proposed action also includes the development of an 82-acre soils mining area located southwest of the intersection of Pletcher and Harold Roads. Soils excavated from the proposed clay mining site would be used by Modern for the construction of the proposed landfill liner system and/or as landfill cover (intermediate and final) material. The proposed clay mining site was selected based on its favorable soil characteristics and proximity to Modern Landfill. The project is located east of the Pletcher & Harold Road intersection. Mine proposal located west of the intersection.
