STP is very excited to announce that the Clean Air Council is helping build awareness of the UNconstitutional pipeline by hosting a live Internet broadcast on March 27th. We encourage you to register for this event.
Join representatives from Clean Air Council, Earthjustice, Delaware Riverkeeper Network, Stop the Pipeline, as well as pipeline expert Richard Kuprewicz for a discussion about the so-called Constitution Pipeline. The Constitution Pipeline is a 124 mile shale gas pipeline proposed to run from Susquehanna County PA to Schoharie County in NY.
This project requires a certificate from the Federal Regulatory Energy Commission (FERC). This requires the company to demonstrate that the project is not only in the public interest, but that it is also a public necessity.
If FERC certifies this project, the pipeline company would be allowed to take private property under eminent domain proceedings. FERC released a Draft Environmental Impact Statement for this pipeline on February 12, 2014. Comments are due by 5 pm on April 7th 2014.
There are public hearings coming up at the end of March and early April with a comment deadline close behind. The webinar will cover potential talking points for comments and testimony.
The webinar will be on Thursday, March 27th from 7:30 – 8:30PM
Everyone is invited! We encourage residents of the greater region to support their neighbors in South Central NY and Northern PA who want to protect their air, water, land and climate.
