Draft Pollution Permits for Dunkirk Plant Confirm that Plan is to Keep Burning Coal

ALBANY, New York - On Friday, the Sierra Club and Earthjustice filed formal comments with New York’s Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) regarding draft air and water pollution permits that DEC proposed in response to permit applications submitted by Dunkirk coal plant owner NRG. According to the groups, the permit applications and draft permits confirm that the Cuomo administration’s bailout of the plant would enable it to continue burning coal indefinitely.
