Catskill joins Athens, Coxsackie on DEC pipeline issue

Jan 17, 2016 12:04 am
Charlie Holmes in The Daily Mail reports that Catskill joined Athens and Coxsackie in sending a second round of letters to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation asking the DEC to head the environmental review of the proposed Pilgrim Pipeline project, rather then share the regulation with the Thruway Authority. The Pilgrim pipelines are proposed to carry crude oil south and refined products back north through two underground pipes stretching from Albany to Linden, New Jersey. “We have sent our letter in asking that the DEC, as we had originally requested, maintain sole lead,” Catskill Town Supervisor Doreen Davis said. In November, the New York State Thruway Authority proposed that the Thruway Authority be the lead agency, then the DEC proposed the two share jurisdiction. Iris Bloom, a Coalition Against Pilgrim Pipelines organizer, said 29 other towns also sent letters asking for the DEC to decide on the environmental issues. Read the full story in The Daily Mail.
