Minotaur proposes shared desalination plant, but environmentalists have reservations
Environmental groups are criticizing the new plan, which would use energy from existing reservoirs at the proposed site. They say the project is too big for the environment, would increase pollution levels, and would hurt the state’s bottom line.
“We must work to limi바카라t the environmental impacts of this energy project — and we can do that by working together,” said Gina McCarthy, executive director of the Sierra Club.
But the proposal has faced strong opposition from environmentalnatyasastra.comists and has been opposed by other groups, like the Michigan Council on Environment and the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality. State바카라 Attorney General Bill Schuette has said the proposed proposed project would create 25,000 permanent jobs while saving taxpayer money by eliminating about 2,500 workers in a state that is in the midst of its worst economic downturn in four decades.
