Allegany County - The New York State Department Of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement. The action involves increasing the total permitted Hyland Landfill footprint from approximately 90 acres (28.27 acres of landfill cell area) to approximately 174 acres (76.27 acres of landfill cell area), and increase the maximum permitted overall height of the landfill by 68 feet, from 2,015 feet above sea level using the National Geodetic Vertical Datum established in 1929 (NGVD 29) to 2,083 feet NGVD 29. The maximum tonnage of waste accepted would also increase from 232,440 tons per year (745 tons per day) to 312,000 tons per year (averaging approximately 1,000 tons per day). If approved, the landfill life would be extended by 20 to 25 years, depending on the rate of waste receipt. The Hyland Landfill facility is located on a 624.4 acre parcel on Herdman Road, which is west of Peacock Hill Road, and approximately 1 mile south of the Village of Angelica, in the Town of Angelica, Allegany County. The proposed expansion area is located immediately south, adjacent to the currently permitted landfill.
