Committee told Casella seeking DEC OK for remediation plan

Officials from the state Department of Environmental Conservation visited the Ontario County Landfill Nov. 4 to check on efforts by Casella Waste Services to correct violations of storm water collection requirements cited earlier this year.

The Planning & Environmental Quality Committee of the Board of Supervisors was told Monday by Casella engineer Amy Dill that after the visit, DEC officials determined that Casella was in “marginal compliance” with the storm water regulations.

“That is better than unsatisfactory,” Dill said. “There were still two issues we had to deal with and we developed a remediation plan and submitted documents to the DEC for approval.”

She identified the two unresolved issues as relating to a spillway around a collection pond and lack of grading of a soil storage area on top of a slope.
