Location: Meeting Room at the Allegany County Library
South Cumberland Branch, 100 Seymour Street,

The application seeks renewal of a permit to discharge an average of 146,000 gallons per day of cooling tower blowdown, boiler blowdown, demineralizer regeneration wastewater, and carbon dioxide scrubber wastes and variable volumes of stormwater, including coal pile runoff, from a steam electric cogeneration and carbon dioxide production facility. The discharges would flow into the North Branch Potomac River.
