State DEC issues 2 environmental violations to Bowline Point power plant
Bowline Point Thermal Power Plant in West Haverstraw has been issued two environmental violations by the state of New York.
The Department of Environmental Conservation tells News 12 it issued two notices of violation to Bowline for black smoke emissions on July 13 and July 27. News 12 was told one was due to an equipment failure, the other was operator error.
The DEC says these violations are not related to reports of bubbling water in the Hudson River, which the DEC says is still investigation.
Regional Director Kelly Turturro says the DEC is “assessing possible fines” and “any additional steps needed.”
