Abstract : A detailed analysis of the environmental impacts associated with the construction and operation of a coal-fired steam electric generating station. Two locations along the southeastern shore of Lake Erie in Chautauqua County, New York have been proposed for this facility. The primary site occupies a 1,054 acre tract of land in the Town of Pomfret, New York, while the secondary site in Sheridan, New York has a total area of approximately 986 acres. Steam produced by this facility will be used to generate approximately 1,700 megawatts of electrical power. The water intake and effluent discharge system will be located in Lake Erie and coal will be delivered to this plant by means of an offshore unloading facility. Approximately 6,000,000 tons of coal will be consumed annually by the Lake Erie Generating Station. (Author)
