EDR is excited to announce the filing of the first ever Application for a Certificate of Environmental Compatibility and Public Need prepared in accordance with Article 10 of the New York State Public Service Law. The Article 10 Application for the Cassadaga Wind Project was filed with the New York State Board on Electric Generation Siting and the Environment (Siting Board) on May 27, 2016, and represents a significant milestone for our client, EverPower Wind Holdings. EDR managed the preparation of the Article 10 Application, along with environmental and engineering support services, including the Preliminary Design Drawings, Shadow Flicker Report, Cultural Resources Studies (Archaeological Survey, Historic Structures Survey, and associated Work Plans), Invasive Species Control Plan, Preliminary Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP), Preliminary Spill Control and Countermeasure Plan, Wetland Delineation Report, Visual Impact Assessment, and Socioeconomic Report. More information about EDR’s role in the Project is available here. The entire Article 10 Application can be viewed and downloaded from the online case record maintained by the Siting Board here.
