RE: Case No. 16-F-0062: Preliminary Scoping Statement for the Eight Point Wind Energy Center
Dear Mr. Gil:
The New York State Department of Health (“the Department”) has reviewed the Preliminary Scoping Statement (PSS) for the Eight Point Wind Energy Center, a proposed up-to 102 MW wind powered electric generating facility located in the Towns of Greenwood, Troupsburg and West Union in Steuben County, New York.
We believe that the attached comments developed by Department of Health Staff, pertaining primarily to potential public health concerns associated with the proposal, will assist in developing an application that will fully address the needs of the local communities and the public more generally.
Thank you for your consideration of these comments; we look forward to your response and to continued discussion on these important issues. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me by email at Richard.Thomas1@health.ny.gov or by phone at (518) 473-1403.
