DEC taking comments again on CPV air permit

The state Department of Environmental Conservation is once again taking public comment on its draft permit for the planned Valley Energy Center.

The DEC approved the draft permit for Competitive Power Ventures’ proposed 650-megawatt natural gas power plant on July 10, 2012. However, it needs to be re-noticed because the source of nitrogen oxide emission offsets need to be identified in the draft permit, Environmental Protection Agency Permitting Chief Steven Riva wrote in a letter to DEC officials. Also, the draft permit didn’t include the annual potential to emit limits for some pollutants, including carbon dioxide, Riva wrote.

Comments must be submitted to the DEC by June 14.

Here’s is the DEC’s public notice, which was posted Wednesday:
