Seneca Meadows, Inc. has submitted an application for a 181-acre landfill expansion to be located adjacent to the existing solid waste landfill located on or adjacent to Route 414 in the Town of Seneca Falls, Seneca County, New York. The expansion will create approximately 31.2 million tons of disposal capacity and will allow an additional 14 years of landfilling at the current approved design capacity of 6,000 tons per day (average daily tonnage rate). The expansion was requested because SMI’s current capacity will be filled in 2009. The Facility’s existing Part 360 Solid Waste Management Facility Permit will be modified to cover all phases of construction and operation of the landfill expansion including the double composite liner system, leachate collection, grading, gas collection and control, stormwater management, tire processing, cover systems, closure and post-closure, waste filling, and environmental monitoring and noise monitoring. There are no changes proposed to the hours of operation. The Part 360 permit for the existing landfill will be modified to reference the Landfill Expansion engineering plans and reports.

A legislative hearing will be held to receive additional unsworn statements from the public on the permit application, draft permits, and the Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement on May 21, 2007 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. A pre-adjudicatory hearing issues conference will be held on May 22, 2007 at 10:00 a.m. All petitions requesting either full party status or amicus status must be received at the DEC Office of Hearings and Mediation Services by no later than May 15, 2007.
