William Kemble is reporting in the Daily Freeman opponents of the proposed 178-mile long Pilgrim Pipeline will hold a forum Mon., Nov. 17, at SUNY New Paltz. The event will focus on the proposal to ship crude oil from Albany to Linden, N.J.., by way of the pipeline, and then send refined gas from New Jersey back to the Capital District. The pipeline route would be largely along the state Thruway corridor. Groups with representatives scheduled to speak at the forum include Citizens for Local Power, Catskill Mountainkeeper and the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater. Opponents have criticized the Pilgrim plan because the pipeline would carry Bakken crude oil, which in January was the subject of a U.S. Department of Transportation warning that Bakken crude “may be more flammable than traditional heavy crude oil.” There is also a brewing controversy about the pipeline developer sending letters to property owners along the proposed pipeline route stating they will face legal action if they bar surveyors from their land. The forum will be held at Monday 7 p.m. in Lecture Center 104, located on the New Paltz campus. Read the full story in the Daily Freeman.
