If approved, the resolution would align the City of Providence and Providence Water Supply Board with the Conservation Law Foundation and against Invenergy.

The Energy Facilities Siting Board today decided to issue an executive order demanding that Invenergy show cause as to why the docket for their proposed power plant shouldn’t be suspended until such a time as the company can produce a reasonable plan for where the company intends to get the water needed to cool the plant.

Even if both Harrisville and Pascoag deny Invenergy their water, it doesn’t necessarily put an end to the company’s plans. Water could be imported from over state lines, and of course there is always the option used by Burrillville’s existing power plant, Ocean State Power. They seem to be trucking in the water from a nearby superfund site.
