What water resource impacts are anticipated from the Project?

The Luyster Creek Energy Project is a land-based project that will be constructed on a previously developed site currently being used as a fuel oil storage facility.

The Project will not require the use of any surface waters or ground waters for plant cooling and will reduce uses of surface water from the existing Astoria Generating Station units due to reduced operations and retirement of an existing unit. Closed cycle air cooling technology will be used on the new facility.
