OUR QUESTIONS & CONCERNS
CRICKET VALLEY ENERGY PERMIT RENEWAL
We've received counsel from lawyers, neighboring town officials, and environmental justice experts. Together, we have lots of questions, many still answered by the project applicant and planning board.
We urge you to ask the town these questions as well. If enough of us ask, maybe they will answer.
Dover Middle and High School are just over 2,000ft from this facility. This is where our children spend most of their day.
Since the power plant began operations in 2020, emissions from the plant have increased each year.
According to an analysis by Cricket Valley, their pollution including upstream emissions has increased to over 3,600,000 tons per year.
CVEC has failed to show they will, or can, reduce emissions to be compliant with new laws and regulations. In fact, their own analysis shows that they will not reduce emissions between now and 2030 as required.
Updated, and accurate airshed studies must be completed.
We question whether construction of the CVEC facility disturbed toxic chemicals at the site including PFAS which has contaminated local water sources at our schools.
