DEC will require impact statement for Seneca Meadows valley infill expansion

The state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) says Seneca Meadows Landfill must submit a Draft Environmental Impact Statement for its so-called valley infill expansion.

The Finger Lakes Times reports the DEC has determined the expansion may have a negative environmental impact. Seneca Meadows wants to expand into the area near the original Taranto landfill on its 400-acre property, a move that could expand its lifespan until 2040. The landfill’s operation permit expires in 2025 and the Seneca Falls Town Board passed a local law requiring the landfill to close at that time. Seneca Meadows is challenging the local law.

State officials have said they want a  “comprehensive and transparent” review of the expansion plan.
