Environmental Review

In October 2012, after a rigorous review by New York's Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) during the State Environmental Quality Review, the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) submitted by Cricket Valley Energy Center was accepted and approved. 

An EIS is a detailed and comprehensive review that closely examines the environmental effects, impacts on human and community resources and economic considerations of proposed actions.  It is designed to keep the government and public fully informed about factors related to proposed actions, and is prepared in accordance with the New York State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA).

To review the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) online, please visit the CVEC Documents page.

The FEIS is also available at the following locations:

  • Town of Dover Town Hall, 126 East Duncan Hill Road, Dover Plains, NY
  • Dover Plains Library, 1797 Route 22, Wingdale, NY  
  • From the very beginning, the community has been an essential part of the Cricket Valley Energy Center project. Share your comments here
