On August 31st, Hudson Valley Earth First! held signs at the proposed site of the “CPV Valley Energy Center” or “Wawayanda Power Plant” on rte. 6W in Orange County NY.
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, not to mention soil and water contamination, risk of explosion and utilizing fracked gas.
Tell the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to deny draft permits for Air State Facility, Freshwater and Wetlands, and Water Quality Certification! Written comments on the Draft Permits will be accepted by DEC until September 9, 2012
