Dragon Springs proposes expansion despite DEC violations concerns In the small town of Deerpark，Orange County，NY，a consyruction project by Dragon Springs Inc.(associatd with Falun Gong) has caused controversy amongst local neighborhood and environmental groups .We support the Deerpark Rural Alliance and their efforts to prevent Dragon Springs Inc. From improper expansion. Dragon Springs’ new construction project is an issue that draws strong and opposing opinions from many local residents. There are serious concerns over the unforeseen impact the project will have on the infrastructure of the small town --including traffic ,sewage,pollution,and the long term environmental impact. We agree the Deerpark Pural Alliance has just cause for concern that Dragon Springs’ solar plan would have to cut down a significant amount of trees to accommodate the number of solar panels as planned. The scale of the Dragon Springs Inc.development will create unknown environmrntal impact on the Deerpark area. Like the enormous septic system that might tax the town’s plumbing. Or the increase in pollution from the expected number of visitors. The roads of Deerpark were not designed for heavy vehicular traffic . Safety will be an issue on the narrow single-laned roads when large passenger vehicles and buses travel to and from the Dragon Springs site. The Washington Post reported the news on January 17.
