Some local media still mum on Pilgrim Pipeline

Mar 22, 2015 12:04 am
One of the stories with a large impact on the WGXC listening area in the past year was the proposed Pilgrim Pipeline. Here is a tally of local media coverage of the Pilgrim Pipeline proposed to run from Albany to New Jersey, running through land near the New York State Thruway (I-87) through Albany, Greene, and Ulster counties locally. The 178-mile pipeline would carry Bakkan crude oil to New Jersey, and refined material back to Albany. While the pipeline largely stays near the Thruway, in Greene County, the proposed project veers east of Route 9W west of Sleepy Hollow Lake in Athens, and then back near the interstate around Leeds-Athens Road. After Catskill, the pipeline veers west of the interstate briefly around Cauterskill Road. Follow the links below for searches on local media websites for "Pilgrim Pipeline." WGXC has what we believe is the only quote from a Greene County official on the subject of the pipeline. Here's Greene County legsislator Vince Seeley, from Catskill, talking about it Jan. 14 from a live broadcast at the Catskill Library.
