Project is located at river mile 536 on the Ohio River, 1.5 miles upstream from the town of Ghent in Carroll County, KY. This impact statement was prepared under the third part consultant procedure, outlined in the EPA January 11, 1977 regulations governing EIS preparation for industry projects requiring NPDES new source permits. The Applicant proposes to add two 500 NW, low sulfur content coal fired units to the Ghent Electric Generating Station, presently 1000 NW. Major issues raised on this project are the proliferation of power generating facilities within the Ohio River Valley and their attendant significant impact to ambient air quality. Identified secondary impacts would be a land use shift from rural agriculture to industrial and commerical uses.
