Seneca County

Applicant: Seneca Meadows Inc
1786 Salcman Rd
Waterloo, NY 13165 -9444
Facility: Seneca Meadows Swmf
1786 Salcman Rd
Waterloo, NY 13165
Application ID: 8-4532-00023/00046
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification
Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management
Project is Located: Seneca Falls, Seneca County
Project Description:
The application, submitted by Seneca Meadows, Inc. (SMI), includes a 178-acre
expansion to be located adjacent to the existing solid waste landfill.  The expansion will create
approximately 28.6 million tons of disposal capacity and will allow 14 years of landfilling at the
current rate of 6,000 tons per day.  The expansion was requested because SMI's current capacity
will be filled in 2009.   
The proposed new footprint will include an overfill between the Existing Landfill
(formerly referred to as the A/B landfill) and the Southeast landfill (SELF) on the east side of
the property and new footprint including an overfill of the Existing Landfill and the west side of
the property to Salcman Road.  In addition, Salcman Road will be rerouted to follow the town
line and a 27.2 acre fill including an overfill of a portion of the SELF and the sediment ponds
along Route 414 will be constructed within the Town of Seneca Falls.  The Tantalo landfill,
which is currently under remediation, will not be overfilled.  The new horseshoe shaped
footprint will reach a peak elevation of approximately 763 feet above mean sea level which is
consistent with the existing facility.
The project proposes a fill of 71-acres of Class 2 regulated Freshwater Wetlands due to
new landfill footprint.  An additional 1.67 acres of regulated wetland is proposed to be
converted or temporarily disturbed due to the relocation of utilities.   The project includes the
relocation of a portion of Black Brook and a new Route 414 bridge to accommodate the
redirected flows.   The project will require the relocation of existing facilities including the tire
processing facility, maintenance building, and access roads.   A wetland mitigation project has
been proposed to be located on the Dove Property which is contiguous with SMI's land holdings
between Route 414 and Black Brook Road. The proposed mitigation project would restore 419
acres of former wetland and enhance another 157 acres of existing wetland.
The Black Brook relocation project includes rerouting Black Brook to the north of the
Existing Landfill.  Two alternatives have been proposed; one will involve the construction of a
designed low-flow channel parallel to the existing channel with habitat complexes and will
temporarily impact 23 acres of wetland. The other alternative would require limited channel
construction (19 acres of temporary impact) and will include selective cutting of trees and
shrubs, and enhancements of 345 acres, to allow increased sunlight for enhanced biodiversity
and flood flow.  Both alternatives will require ongoing maintenance.  
SMI is applying for permits in a two stage process.  In addition to the natural resources
permit applications (Part 663 Freshwater Wetlands permit and the Water Quality Certification
pursuant to Section 401 of the Clean Water Act), a Draft Generic Environmental Impact
Statement (DGEIS), has been submitted.  Potential impacts to ecological (including vegetation
and wildlife), community, agricultural, and cultural resources were evaluated in detail. Potential
impacts to noise, visual, soils, ground and surface waters, geology, traffic, and air resources
were evaluated based on conceptual plans.
SMI will continue with Stage 2 of the permitting, which will include the Part 360 Solid
Waste Management Facility Permit application, Part 201 State Air Facility Permit applications,
and General Permit for Stormwater Discharges from Construction Activities, at the conclusion
of the Stage 1 process, the goal of which is the issuance of the natural resources permits
conditional upon receipt of Stage 2 permits.  A supplemental SEQR review may be required
during Stage 2.
See the Notice of Acceptance of the Draft Generic Environmental Impact Statement in the SEQR Section of the ENB.  This also discusses document availability.
