An environmental assessment (EA) for Project No. 2738-049 is available for public review. The EA examines the New York State Electric and Gas Corporation's (NYSEG) proposal to change land rights, and sell 101 acres within the current boundary of the Saranac River Hydroelectric Project to Clinton County, New York (County) or New England Waste Services of New York, Inc. (NEWSNY). The County and NEWSNY have a public-private partnership currently operating a solid waste landfill adjacent to NYSEG's Kents Falls development, and propose to expand the landfill upon the project lands they would acquire. The Kents Falls development is located along the Saranac River within the town of Schuyler Falls, Clinton County, New York.
