Applicant: Westchester County

Facility: WCDEF-SPROUT Br Ashfill
729 Highland Ave
Cortlandt, NY 10520
Application ID: 3-5522-00079/00002
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management
Project is Located: Cortlandt, Westchester County
Project Description:
        The Westchester County Department of Department of Environmental Facilities has applied for a modification of the current Part 360 permit for its Sprout Brook Ash Residue Disposal Facility (the Ashfill).   
        Background:  The ashfill facility is the sole disposal facility for the ash generated by the County's nearby Charles Point Resource Recovery facility which serves the waste disposal needs of a large portion of Westchester County.  The 38-acre County facility was first permitted in 1983 and has been receiving ash since shortly thereafter.  The Ashfill currently meets all of the safeguards in the Part 360 regulations governing the design, construction and operation of this disposal facility, including a baseliner system under the ashfill, a leachate collection system to collect leachate generated by the ashfill, a groundwater well monitoring system around its perimeter and a final cover system to keep out rainwater,  which is the source of any leachate.
        Requested Modification:   The applicant requests a modification the Ashfill Part 360 permit to extend the existing baseliner system approximately 50 feet beyond the current limit along Phases 1 and 2, and to revise the operational filling sequence until the end of the facility's operational life, which is expected to be through 2009.  This will provide the County with approximately 522,000cubic yards of ashfill capacity.   This modification will raise the side slopes of the ashfill but will not increase its maximum height.
           Variance:   The applicant is also seeking a variance to allow the final cover of the ashfill to be made up of a combination geocomposite material covered by gravel throughout the landfill, instead of the geocomposite material covered by topsoil, which is normally required by the regulations.  Because the cover material is meant to hold the geocomposite material in place, the County believes substituting gravel for soil on top of the geocomposite material will satisfy this requirement of Part 360.
        The application documents are available in the Department's New Paltz office upon request.
