Hughes Energy, LLC Solid Waste Management Facility

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as Lead Agency pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 617 (SEQR), has determined by its issuance of a SEQR Positive Declaration that the proposed construction and operation of a new solid waste management facility proposed by Hughes Energy, LLC has the potential to create at least one significant adverse impact on the environment and therefore a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (Draft EIS) must be prepared. The proposed facility is located on an approximately 40 acre parcel (Tax Parcel 113.-1-25) along State Route 23 in the Town of Roxbury, Delaware County, New York. As proposed, the facility would process up to 176,400 tons per year of municipal solid waste into a marketable fiber product using a proprietary steam composting and mechanical processing system. The proposal includes construction of an approximately 115,000 square foot processing building, an approximately 9,500 square foot administrative office and maintenance shop, a new commercial driveway, parking areas, and stormwater control structures. A draft scoping document has been prepared by the NYS DEC to outline the content of the required Draft EIS.

A written public comment period pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 617 has commenced to gather public input on the draft scoping document and proposed content of the Draft EIS.

Written comments on the draft scoping document are being accepted by NYS DEC and must be submitted by mail or e-mail to the contact person listed above by November 30, 2021. Written comments should be limited in content to comments on potential significant adverse impacts. General opposition to the proposal cannot be accommodated within the scoping document or the Draft EIS.

A copy of the draft scoping document and SEQR Positive Declaration may be viewed on the DEC Hughes Energy webpage: https://www.dec.ny.gov/permits/123992.html

Paper copies of the draft scoping document and SEQR Positive Declaration may be viewed at the following public document repositories from 9:00 a.m.- to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday:

Public Comment Hearing for Proposed Rulemakings - 6 NYCRR Part 613, Petroleum Bulk Storage (PBS) Regulations and 6 NYCRR Parts 597/598, Chemical Bulk Storage (CBS) Regulations

Notice is hereby given that the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) has extended the public comment period for proposed amendments to 6 NYCRR Part 613 of the Petroleum Bulk Storage (PBS) regulations and 6 NYCRR Parts 596-599 of the Chemical Bulk Storage (CBS) regulations and is holding an additional public comment period for these rulemakings. The proposed PBS and CBS rulemakings are principally aimed at harmonizing existing State requirements with federal requirements (40 CFR Parts 280 and 302). CBS regulations are restructured so they are consistent with Federal 40 CFR Part 280 and the New York State PBS regulations. These revisions do not establish any new requirements or costs concerning the bulk storage of petroleum and chemicals. There is no change to how facilities operate under existing industry practices and applicable federal and State laws and regulations. The revisions may eliminate or reduce costs that are incurred by certain facilities under the existing rules by allowing certain retrofits, practices, and leak detection methods.

Written Comments:

The public is invited to submit written comments on the proposed rulemaking through 5:00 p.m. on December 6, 2021. Written comments can be submitted as follows:

  1. By email to derweb@dec.ny.gov. Please include "Comments on Proposed Part 613" or "Comments on Proposed Part 597/598" in the subject line of the email; or
  2. By mail to Jennifer Dawson, NYS DEC - Division of Environmental Remediation, 625 Broadway, Albany, NY 12233-7012.

Public Comment Hearing:

A public comment hearing for the proposed rule-makings will be held before Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) Daniel P. O'Connell electronically via the Webex Events platform as follows. The electronic format is reasonably accessible to persons with impaired mobility:

Date: Tuesday, November 30, 2021
Time: 3:00 p.m.
Location: electronically via Webex Events

Instructions on how to "join" the hearing webinar, how to provide an oral statement, and how to register for the hearing may be accessed at the Proposed Regulations webpage for Parts 597 and 598 and Part 613 at: https://www.dec.ny.gov/regulations/propregulations.html.
