Positive Declaration

Niagara County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (the Department), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed CWM Chemical Services, LLC (CWM) proposal to increase its existing disposal capacity by addition of a new landfill unit identified as Residuals Management Unit 2 (RMU-2) Landfill, located in Model City, Town of Porter, Niagara County may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The action involves Site/construct/operate a 50acre landfill to be designated as RMU-2 for an estimated 3,976,100cubic yards of hazardous and industrial non-hazardous waste. The proposed landfill would employ state-of-the-art design and operating technology, incorporating primary and secondary liners, and independent primary and secondary leachate collection and pumping systems. A perimeter berm would surround the proposed landfill to control stormwater run-on and run-off. In order to accommodate the proposed landfill, the existing on-site Empty Trailer Parking Area, Full Trailer Parking Area, Emergency Response Garage, Heavy Equipment and Facility Maintenance/Rolloff Repair Building and Meteorological Tower and Drum Management Building will be relocated or replaced at other locations within CWM's Model City Landfill Facility. The CWM Model City Facility is located along Balmer Road, 1.9miles east of the intersection of Balmer Road and Creek Road (NYS Route18) in the Town of Porter, Niagara County. The proposed RMU-2 Landfill will be located immediately adjacent to the western edge of the existing RMU-1 Landfill at the Model City Facility.
