The deadline for public comment on the plan to build a 1,000-megawatt transmission line is Friday.
The project, proposed by Champlain Hudson Power Express Inc., is to bring hydropower and wind power from Canada to New York City.
Written comments can be emailed to email@example.com.
Comments should refer to “Case: 10-T-0139 Champlain Hudson Power Express Inc.”
The transmission line would run underwater in the Hudson River, heading south to Stony Point. To avoid disturbing Haverstraw Bay’s sensitive ecosystem, the line would run underground along the CSX rail right-of-way to West Haverstraw and to Rockland Lake State Park. It would then follow Route 9W south for a short distance through Clarkstown and cross under Rockland Lake State Park before re-entering the Hudson River to head to New York City.
