Assemblywoman Jaffee cites our article

In a letter to the New York State Public Service Commission, Assemblywoman Ellen Jaffee (AD-95; Rockland County) cites our article on desalination in Northeastern US along with other evidence to request reconsideration of the PSC order that led United Water to propose the Haverstraw desalination project.

Vedachalam and Riha’s point goes to my concern about nontransparent data submitted by UWNY in its DEIS. It is the PSC’s duty to represent the public in cases where project selection could be marred by conflicts, which, as Vedachalam and Riha caution, can lead “to often poorly evaluated alternative options.”

She further uses our data from the Brockton project to emphasize the potential impact of conservation. Read the full letter here (searchable text version here).
