Kinder Morgan/Tennessee Gas Pipeline wants to put a series of gas pipelines through parts of the WGXC listening area from Albany into Massachusetts and Connecticut, called the Northeast Expansion and Connecticut Expansion Project. The Chaham Courier reports Kinder Morgan meets with Columbia County residents on the proposed Northeast Energy Direct Project to install a gas pipeline from Wright in Schoharie County to Dracut, Massachusetts. The proposed pipeline will go through Canaan, New Lebanon, Malden Bridge, and East Chatham. That meeting is at 4 p.m. Oct. 30 at the New Lebanon Firehouse, 523 Route 20, New Lebanon. The day before, at 7 p.m. on Wed., Oct. 29 at the Sandisfield Arts Center, 5 Hammertown Road, in Sandisfield, MA. FERC, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, is holding a ‘scoping meeting” about the environmental and safety impact of the Connecticut Expansion Project.
