NYC’s Sane Energy Project Working Hard to Generate Comments on Spectra Natural Gas Pipeline ProjectSep 13th, 2011 | By admin | Category: NYC Natural Gas Infrastructure
Last week, on the one-year anniversary of the San Bruno explosion, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission released it’s draft Environmental Impact Statement on the massive new natural gas pipeline that Spectra Energy proposes to build between New Jersey and New York City.
To date, most of the opposition to the project has been coming from New Jersey, but an organization called the Sane Energy Project has been working hard to increase awareness of the pipeline and its potential affect on NYC — and now that the draft document has been released, there’s a fairly limited time frame for the public to weigh in on it.
The Sane Energy Project has a great set of links to the FERC report, which is daunting in its length to say the least, but they’ve managed to break it down into digestible chunks, and the site will help you submit your comment on the project, too.
Definitely worth a look if you’ve got the time.
