Facility: Bruce Austic Landspreading Site
Old Log City Rd
Romulus, NY
Application ID: 8-4530-00031/00003
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management
Project is Located: Romulus, Seneca County
Project Description:
A complete application has been received in the NYSDEC Region 8 office from Yaws Environmental Process Control, Inc.  for application of anaerobically digested municipal sewage sludge to farm land located on the Bruce Austic farm.  The Bruce Austic farm is located on the northeast corner of West Blaine Road and Log City Road in the Town of Romulus.  The municipal sewage sludge will be landspread over 79 acres of the Bruce Austic farm.

The application materials, as prepared by a licensed engineer, satisfactorily demonstrate that the regulatory requirements of the Department's Part 360 Solid Waste Management Facility regulations will be met in full.  The landspreading site meets all the set back requirements for residences, potable water wells, property lines and drainage ditches. The sludge will be applied by either subsurface injection (approximately 6 inches below the surface) or application on the surface and plowing under within 24 hours, therefore there should be no impact to surface or ground water and odor should be minimal.  In addition, sludge will not be applied during rainfall or when the ground is snow covered, frozen or saturated.  Soil and sludge analysis will be conducted periodically to ensure that regulatory thresholds are not exceeded.  In addition, an annual report will be reviewed by the Department.
