Environmental Groups Object to Constitution Pipeline Environmental Report

Kathy Whyte/ WNBF News

A coalition of environmental groups is formally objecting to a draft environmental impact statement concerning a natural gas delivery pipeline that is proposed to run 124 miles through parts of the Southern Tier and Central New Yorkto transport gas from fields in Pennsylvania to parts of the northeast.

Groups like EarthJustice, CleanAir Council, the Sierra Club and the Delaware-Otsego Audubon Society are among those claiming the report on the environmental impact of the project is generalized and does not contain complete information on impacts of not only the Constitution Pipeline, but effects that could be incurred during its construction.

Meanwhile, the Chenango County Farm Bureau has joined the Southern Tier Residents for Economic Independence, a coalition that says it is supporting responsible development of natural gas in the Southern Tier.
