Oswego County - The Planning Board of the Town of Scriba, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Scriba Wind Energy Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves construction/operation of a 3.6 mW prototype wind power generator on the grounds of the existing Alcan Aluminum Corporation, Oswego Works. Project facilities include: 1) the windmill itself, with a tubular stell tower height of 100 meters (328 feet) and a rotor diameter of 104 meter (341 feet); 2) a rotor speed of 8.5-15.3 revolutions per minute; 3) a cut-in wind speed of 3.5 m/s (7.8 mph) and a cut-out wind speed of 27 m/s (60.4 mph); 4) a meter house with an interconnection voltage of 34.5 kV (or 13.2 kV to the station); and 5) a meteorological station, with a tubular steel tower of 100 meters. The project is located at Alcan Aluminum Corporation, Oswego Works, 448 County Route 1A, PO Box 28, Oswego, New York 13126 (Town of Scriba)

Broome County - The Broome County Legislature, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Broome County Landfill 6 NYCRR 360 Permit no. 7-0399-00027/00002 Modification - Vertical Expansion. A public hearing on the Draft Supplemental EIS will be held on November 10, 2003, at 5:00 p.m. at the Legislative Chambers, 6th Floor, Edwin L. Crawford County Office Building, 44 Hawley Street, Binghamton, NY. Draft Supplemental EIS public comment period ends November 24, 2003. Written comments shall be filed with the Clerk of the Broome County Legislature, Legislative Chambers, 6th Floor, Edwin L. Crawford County Office Building, PO Box 1766, 44 Hawley St., Binghamton, NY 13902. The action involves modification of Broome County’s DEC Permit no. 7-0399-00027/00002. Broome County is proposing to modify the existing permit to increase the final approved height of the landfill by approximately 110 feet. This would result in a finished elevation of 1630 feet mean sea level. The proposed height increase will provide approximately 1.5 million cubic yards of additional capacity in Section II and III of the existing landfill before transitioning to Section IV. The proposed modification is estimated to provide an additional 4.6 years of site life. Condition 74 of the Landfill Permit concerns bird hazard to aircraft mitigation. Other permit conditions to be modified include Condition 28: chain link fences and gates required around all sedimentation ponds and Condition 33: quarterly monitoring for BTEX. The Final EIS for the Expansion of Broome County’s Nanticoke Landfill was published in 1984. This project represents a change to that action. The project is located at 286 Knapp Road, Binghamton, NY 13905. Towns of Nanticoke, Barker and Maine.
