Why Do We Care About the Pipeline?

The Constitution Pipeline is a joint venture between Williams and Cabot Oil and Gas.  As proposed, it would run 121 miles from Susquehanna County, PA to Schoharie County, NY.  The Federal Regulatory Energy Commission (FERC) has not yet approved the project or granted eminent domain to it, but Williams and Cabot must first demonstrate to FERC that the project is not only “in the public interest” but that it is also a public “necessity” without which customers in the Northeast region will be deprived of essential energy supplies.

With the establishment of the Constitution Pipeline the door is opened for hydrofracking and for any number of compressor stations along the route, significantly threatening the rural character of our communities and putting our public health a risk.

Local group STOP THE PIPELINE asks for comments to be submitted to the FERC as soon as possible.  See their website for more information about comments and about the proposed pipeline.
