WOONSOCKET, R.I. (AP) - A company seeking to build a $700 million gas-fired power plant in the Rhode Island town of Burrillville has told regulators it plans to purchase cooling water from the city of Woonsocket.

The Call reports that Chicago-based Invenergy says in documents filed with the Energy Facility Siting Board that the proposed Clear River Energy Center would require some 14 miles of new pipeline from the city and changes to the design of the city’s proposed $70 million water treatment plant.

The board had temporarily suspended Invenergy’s application in October after a proposed water supply was taken off the table.

Documents say Woonsocket officials are on track to hold a public hearing on details of the water supply plan on Jan. 6.

Burrillville is located in Rhode Island’s rural northwestern corner.
