Jan 30, 2023 5:45 pm
The “Iroquois” Pipeline Company wants to drastically increase the amount of gas they push through their existing 37 year old “Iroquois” pipeline, which runs from Northern New York (including the Capital District) to Long Island and NYC. In order to push more gas through the aging pipeline, they are applying to build four compressor stations along the route of the pipeline - in Athens in Greene County and Dover in Dutchess County, and Brookfield and Milford in CT. NYS DEC is holding a hearing on Tuesday, Jan. 31. Laura Shindell of Food and Water Watch talks with WOOC's Mark Dunlea.
