Application ID: 7-5032-00069/00003
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management
Project is Located: Lansing, Tompkins County
Project Description:
The Department has made a tentative determination to approve a modification and renewal of the existing Part 360 Solid Waste Management Permit for the AES Cayuga coal ash landfill. The modification involves a 10' vertical expansion on top of the previously approved 1984 Phase II landfill section which is 7.9 acres in size. The expansion is necessary to extend the life of the landfill to accommodate coal ash produced by the AES Cayuga electric power generation facility nearby. AES Cayuga is also seeking alternative uses for the ash material. A liner system will be installed over the existing landfill before additional material is added and a geo-membrane cap system will be installed over the final grade of the entire Phase II landfill that meets current Part 360 standards. Water quality monitoring will continue as required by Part 360. The application and the draft permit are available for review in the Cortland DEC Office.
