No Gas Power Plant!
Competitive Power Ventures, Inc., of Silver Springs, MD plans to build a $750 million gas power plant in the Town of Wawayanda in Orange County NY that could be built by 2013. The plant itself will be located on 33 acres of a 120-acre site located near the Pine Hill Cemetery outside the City of Middletown. The power plant will utilize fracked natural gas from the Millennium Pipeline. The plant would emit approximately 95 tons of particulate matter a year including Nitrogen Oxides, Sulfur Dioxides, Ammonia, and Volatile Organic Compounds. This would add pollutants to a county with already poor air quality, as well as soil and water contamination, risk of explosion and the utilization of fracked natural gas. check the links section for more details on the project. The Town of Wawayanda & Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) have already approved the project, but before the project can move ahead, 3 permits must be approved.
