Notice Of Acceptance Of Final EIS

Suffolk County - The Long Island Power Authority (LIPA), as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Caithness Long Island Energy Center. The proposed facility would consist of an approximately 350 megawatt, dual-fueled combined-cycle power plant, consisting of a Siemens Westinghouse Power Corporation 501F turbine, a heat recovery steam generator and a single steam turbine. The proposed facility would be fueled primarily by natural gas, with low sulfur distillate oil as a backup fuel for up to 30 days per year when natural gas is not available. The heat recovery steam generator would be equipped with natural gas-fired duct burners. Air-cooled condensing would be employed to minimize water usage, reduce water treatment costs and eliminate a cooling tower plume. Selective catalytic reduction technology and an oxidation catalyst would be utilized to reduce air emissions. The facility would interconnect to the 138-kilovolt (kV) LIPA system within the 96-acre parcel via a new 138 kV switchyard to be constructed on site and adjacent to the existing LIPA 138 kV Holbrook-to-Brookhaven transmission line right-of-way.

A public hearing on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) was held on April 20, 2005 and written comments on the DEIS were received by LIPA through May 25, 2005. Copies of such comments, together with the transcript of the April 20 public hearing are included in the FEIS. The FEIS summarizes and responds to all such written and oral comments in a new chapter, “Response to Comments on Draft Environmental Impact Statement.”

The FEIS is available on the LIPA website at www.lipower.org (under the “About LIPA, Powering LI” tab) and at the following locations: Brookhaven Free Library, 273 Beaver Dam Road, Brookhaven, NY 11719, (631) 286-1923; Longwood Public Library, 800 Middle Country Road, Middle Island, NY 11953, (631) 924-6400; South Country Library, 22 Station Road, Bellport, NY 11713, (631) 286-0818; and Patchogue-Medford Library, 54-60 East Main Street, Patchogue, NY 11772, (631) 654-4700.

The project is located in the Town of Brookhaven’s Empire Development Zone in Suffolk County, Long Island. The proposed facility would be located on a 15-acre site within an approximately 96-acre parcel located south of the Sills Road interchange (Exit 66) of the Long Island Expressway within the Town of Brookhaven, Suffolk County, Long Island. The property is east of Old Dock Road and north of Horseblock Road and bounded on the north by the Long Island Railroad.
