CCE Holds Constitution Pipeline Meetings for Delaware County Residents Thursday, May 17, Harpersfield and Franklin
5/13/12 - 5:53 pm
From a story in the Oneonta Daily Star:
"Educational meetings for a large-diameter natural gas pipeline being proposed for the region will take place in Delaware County this month.
"The Constitution Pipeline Company, composed of natural gas companies Williams and Cabot Oil and Gas, has started surveying for the 120-mile pipeline in at least one town along the proposed route, Davenport Town Supervisor Dennis Valente said.
"Cornell Cooperative Extension of Delaware County will offer two meetings May 17 for farmers and landowners affected by the proposed pipeline.
"According to the Williams website, the pipeline is designed to move gas collected at Susquehanna County, Pa., (an area involved in hydrofracking) to the Iroquois Gas Transmission and Tennessee Gas Pipeline systems in Schoharie County.
"The high-pressure pipeline will also pass through Broome and Chenango counties and 42.4 miles along the northern part of Delaware County. The proposed in-service date is March 31, 2015.
"The meetings May 17 are specifically to address farmland/forestry issues, according to a Cooperative Extension media release.
"An afternoon meeting will take place from 1 to 3 p.m. in Harpersfield at the Col. Harper Grange building at 170 Wilcox Rd. The night meeting is from 7 to 9 p.m. at Franklin Central School on Institute Street.
"Speakers in panel presentations will include: Matthew Brower from state Agriculture and Markets; legal expert Chris Denton, who works with pipeline easements statewide (night meeting only); Walt Friebell, a master forester; and representatives from the gas pipeline company.
"There will be no debate about natural gas exploration in New York state, because affected landowners are the priority audience, the release said. No registration is necessary."
CDOG encourages all concerned Delaware County residents to pay close attention to this issue. Compressor stations are integral to pipelines. Once pipelines are installed, additional compressors beyond those initially put in place are typically required to continue to move gas along pipelines. Compressor stations are extremely disruptive, loud, create air and water toxicity problems, and adversely affect property values and land use.
