No. The Project is not near any public roadways.

Minimal discharges will be made into the public wastewater system. The facility is expected to utilize a portable water treatment system that will be routinely replaced and not require the chemicals and discharges normally associated with water treatment for a generating facility. These discharges will be quantified in the DEIS.

Only stormwater runoff, currently regulated by an existing storm water discharge permit, may be discharged. Modifications to this permit, if any, will be completed as part of the Project. A new storm water management plan will be developed as part of the Project to be approved by the NYSDEC.

City water will be used as a control technology to reduce NOx emissions when firing on ULSD. Estimated quantities are addressed in the DEIS. No river water will be used for the construction or operation of the facility.

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.

No.

Only storm water run off, currently regulated by a existing storm water discharge permit, may be discharged. Modifications to this permit, if any, will be completed as part of the project. A new storm water management plan will be developed as part of the project to be approved by the State.

The South Pier Improvement Project is a land-based project that will be constructed on a previously developed site consisting of compacted fill secured by a steel sheet-piled bulkhead. Due to the structural integrity of the existing bulkhead, the “south pier” is properly characterized as a well-defined earthen landmass, which can support a project of this scale. The pier is not suspended over water.
