email CPS power plant dilemma
This is one of the best articles I have read on the pros and cons of CPS building a new coal fire power plant in San Antonio.
The only thing Anton Caputo failed to discuss in his story is the fact that both the new and old plants will be located to the southeast of San Antonio.
For most of the year, any pollution emitted from the plants will travel directly over our city (as it currently does). From my perspective, CPS still needs to pay for SO2 monitors on the north side of town to prove that they are not contributing to our ozone problem and they need to thoroughly test all lakes and ponds to the north of the plant for mercury.
CPS maintains that they have tested their lakes around the plant for mercury, but with our prevailing winds from the southeast, any mercury pollution would most likely be found at lakes located to the northwest of the plants. Please let me know how you feel on this issue. Thanks.
