Baseline Data Collection Services
This project involves baseline data collection for current air quality, current noise environment, and current water quality testing assessments for the area surrounding a 22,400 HP solar titan 130E turbine-driven gas compressor unit and associated infrastructure in the Town of Highland, NY, as proposed by the Millennium Pipeline Company, LLC as part of a larger project known as the Eastern System Upgrade or Highland Compressor Station.
KC is developing a work plan that includes defining the specifics regarding sampling locations for water, noise, and air. The water sampling is being performed based on permitted access and review of any existing studies of prevailing groundwater movements as well as surface water directional flows. Noise testing is being performed throughout the seasons to account for vegetation and the prevalence of outdoor activity at different times of the year. Air monitoring is being performed at the location identified in the work plan. Current weather condition data is being logged as well. KC is cataloging and comparing data to EIS reports. Data will be added to GIS models in the future.
