Environmental Impact of the velocity and temperature emissions

Re: CP17-101 Northeast Supply Enhancement Project

Pursuant to Senator Cory Booker’s and Senator Bob Smith’s submissions, I am hereby notifying FERC of gaps in data not submitted for CP17-101 and missing analysis required for a full and accurate Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS).

Issue: Missing Data – Environmental Impact of the velocity and temperature emissions

Reports are missing studies regarding the environmental impact of the anticipated velocity of emissions of 210,000 cubic feet per minute (cfm) at 849 degrees Fahrenheit on birds, bats, insects, and nearby vegetation and weather patterns. With the Solar MARS 100 specification sheet in the application indicating a higher temperature than 849 degrees Fahrenheit, it is critical to assess this high volume heat exhaust effect on the local environment. This heat will be at a constant volume day and night, which needs to be full assessed in terms of the impact to the environment.

The above missing data and analysis are significant gaps for CP17-101 application. This project is meant to be a convenience, not to harm people, damage the environment or increase climate change. I urge FERC to pursue all highlighted gaps in data and analysis for this project to provide a comprehensive DEIS.

I very much appreciate your vigilance and oversight in fully assessing all potential risks, heath threats and environmental impacts that this project poses.
