Synopsis: The CPV plant and proposed retooling of Danskammer plant and impacts on local air quality.
Orange Environment has been an advocate for better air quality in Orange County for over 35 years. OE sees the operation of the CPV plant in Wawayanda and the proposed future retooling of the Danskammer plant in Newburgh as further detrimental emission impacts to local air quality and climate change, especially with the use of fracking gas. OE brought together several experts in air pollution and particulate matter, safety and evacuation procedures, and socio/economic impacts on local communities to analyze how these problems affect local properties and populations. OE has been working with local communities fighting these plants.
