Positive Declaration and Public Scoping (Correction)
Nassau County - The Town of Hempstead Industrial Development Agency, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Covanta Hempstead Energy from Waste Facility Expansion Project may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. Written comments on the draft scope will be accepted until December 15, 2008. A public scoping session will be held on November 20, 2008 at 7:00 p.m. at the Town of Hempstead Town Hall, Nathan Bennett Pavilion, Hempstead, NY. The action involves the expansion of the Covanta Hempstead Company's existing energy from waste (EfW) facility through the addition of one new boiler at the facility, with a nominal capacity of 1,100 tons per day of solid waste, together with a new turbine generator expected to generate 29 MW of electricity (net to grid). The action also involves increasing groundwater withdrawals by approximately 270 million gallons per year, constructing a new cooling tower and ancillary equipment and upgrading the air pollution control equipment on the existing facility. The project is located at 600 Merchants Concourse in Westbury, Town of Hempstead, New York.
