Current Local Issue:
2017 Completed segment known as the Algonquin Pipeline:
This segment, running from New Jersey, through Westchester and Putnam Counties in NY was still in litigation as of the end of 2017. See items 5) & 6) Most recent news, listed below. The last segment going from CT to Halifax, Nova Scotia is still tied up in reviews and legal challenges in Massachusetts. By segmenting the project, the natural gas company, Spectra, was able to skirt a more complex review of the impact on our natural resources and populations living in proximity to the pipeline.
1) Proposed, larger gas pipe size is within 100 feet of the aging Indian Point nuclear power plant.
2) Federal Energy Commission (FERC) refuses to have an independent, safety review of the expansion.
3) Gas is not intended for domestic consumption but for foreign sales, linking pipeline to Boston Harbor.
