What you can do to STOP the CPV Valley power plant

1­ GET INVOLVED. We are up against a billion dollar company. WE CAN WIN but we need ALL HANDS ON DECK. Join Protect Orange County. Come to our next meeting and join a committee. This is what we need more than anything else. Email stopcpv@gmail.com  and ask to be added to our email list. We will not overwhelm you with emails, but you can stay informed about upcoming events and actions.

 CALL GOVERNOR CUOMO Although the project itself has received all of its approvals it has not received a critical state permit for the Millennium to CPV lateral pipeline called the Valley Lateral Pipeline. It needs a state issued 401 Water Quality Certificate. Call or Email Governor Cuomo and Basil Seggos, the current Commissioner of the DEC, and tell them to reject the permit. This pipeline would cut across critical wetlands and water bodies. Tell them we are a protected district and will not accept this project in Orange County. Take a sample letter and mail it to the Governor. CALL CUOMO: 518­474­8390 and/or EMAIL CUOMO TO: gov.cuomo@chamber.state.ny.us Cc:basil.seggos@dec.ny.gov

3. Come to our WEEKLY PICKET at the construction site. Pickets are every Saturday 11am – 12pm. The site is on Route 6, just south of the intersection with Route 17M.

5 ­WRITE LETTERS TO THE EDITORS One of the best ways of informing your neighbors about this plant is by writing letters to the editors. So far the media has not covered this story in depth. Look on our website for information and talking points then write your own letter

6­ SPREAD THE WORD Print out  a flyer with information about the plant and share with your neighbors, leave it in the grocery store, or your local library.

7­ SIGN OUR PETITION available online at our website. Or print one out from our website and ask your neighbors to sign it.

8 ­DONATE TO OUR LEGAL FUND We have a major lawsuit underway against CPV in the NYS Supreme Court. We will also be filing a suit against FERC and DEC if they issue permits for the lateral pipeline. All this requires considerable money for legal fees and experts. You can donate directly to our legal fund online through paypal on our website at www.protectorangecounty.org
