Notice Of Acceptance Of Draft EIS And Public Hearing

Cattaraugus County – The Town of Ellicottville Planning Board, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Laidlaw Energy and Environmental Inc. Power Plant. A public hearing on the Draft EIS will be held on October 3, 2005, 7:00 p.m., in the Foxfire/Maple Leaf Room, Second Floor, Clubhouse Chalet, Holiday Valley Resort, Holiday Valley Road, Ellicottville. Written comments on the Draft EIS will be accepted until October 17, 2005. Copies of the DEIS are available for public review in the Ellicottville Town Hall, 1 West Washington Street, Ellicottville, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. A copy of the DEIS is also available at the Ellicottville Memorial Library, 1 Washington Street, Ellicottville. The action involves the conversion of a now–closed power plant fueled by natural gas to one fueled by biomass (wood chips). The capacity of the plant will be increased from 4MW to 7MW. This is a co–generation plant that will also power existing lumber–drying kilns. The original application included the proposed construction of a 50 foot high boilerhouse and 70 foot high exhaust stack and the outdoor storage of a 30 day supply of woodchips. The DEIS has identified a preferred alternative that calls for placing the boiler in a 15 foot deep basement, so that an existing building will be used to house the boiler, and reducing the exhaust stack height to 52.5 feet. A 10–day supply of woodchips is now proposed, which would be contained in an existing building. The project is located at 6662 Route 219 North, Town of Ellicottville, NY.
