Notice Of Acceptance Of Final Supplemental EIS

Monroe/Wayne Counties - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (Department), as State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQR) Lead Agency, has accepted a Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (FSEIS) on the proposed Parkway Expansion Phase III and Vertical Expansion. The proposed Parkway Expansion Phase III and Vertical Expansion is a lateral and vertical expansion of the existing, permitted Western Expansion Landfill (WEX) and Parkway Expansion Phase I and II landfills. The proposed expansion includes a vertical expansion over a 7.4 acre overliner over the northeast corner of the closed landfill and approximately 90 acres over the existing, permitted landfill. The vertical expansion is anticipated to be approximately 100 feet above the existing, permitted landfill. The proposed lateral expansion includes 144.3 acres of "new" landfill operations in the Town of Macedon (138.5 acres) and Town of Perinton (5.8 acres) with an additional 33 acres of undeveloped land utilized for support operations (i.e., roadways, berms, sedimentation basins). This proposed expansion will extend the life of the landfill an additional 43.3 years. The expansion will not involve any changes in the operations of the facility or the approved design capacity. A double composite liner system and primary and secondary leachate collection systems will be utilized in the design of the landfill expansion. This project also involves mitigation for fill of approximately 9.3 acres of federally regulated wetland. Mitigation will include creation of additional wetland areas adjacent to NYS FWW MA-12 and enhancements of NYS FWW MA-12 to promote habitat diversity.
