Peter Mantius reports on environmental politics in New York’s Finger Lakes
Important Village of Dresden Meeting tonight – Wed June 7th at 7:30pm. Be sure to attend if you are interested in the impacts of Greenidge Generation Plant.
We, the Committee to Preserve the Finger Lakes (CTPFL), along with Sierra Club seek your support as we proceed with our appeal in our case against Greenidge Generation Corporation (Parent Company – Atlas Holding) and the DEC. To summarize, we are asking for a full environmental impact study to be conducted.
The entire Finger Lakes Region, especially Seneca Lake, is seeing a renaissance in tourism and agritourism, such as; wineries, breweries, cideries and distilleries.
Seneca Lake is also the source of drinking water for 100,000 residents. The negative environmental impact that reopening the Greenidge power plant and its existing unlined coal ash landfill will have on the Seneca Lake water quality, utilizing their current outdated system, is significant. According to the DEC’s own policy (CP-#52) they recommend using the best technology available, which is a closed cycle cooling system.
Many thanks for your support and leadership.
