Ground broken for biomass heater at state offices 

Numerous state and local officials were on hand Tuesday as several state agencies took part in the ceremonial groundbreaking for a biomass heating system that will be built for the state office complex in Ray Brook.

Local officials, along with state Adirondack Park Agency, Department of Environmental Conservation and New York Power Authority employees, gathered behind the DEC Region 5 headquarters at the future site of a system that will use wood pellets to heat the DEC, APA and New York State Police Troop B headquarters.

The project was originally proposed three years ago, and the APA gave it final approval last November. In addition to providing environmentally friendly heat, the biomass heater will also serve as a public education center.
