Constitution Pipeline meetings set for this week

Lissa Harris is reporting at the Watershed Post the company behind the Constitution Pipeline will hold two meetings this week, in Cobleskill and Oneonta. The Constitution Pipeline is a planned 121-mile natural gas pipeline that will bring gas from Susquehanna County in northern Pennsylvania to the Iroquois and Tennessee pipelines in Schoharie County. The pipeline has drawn opposition from some landowners whose land its proposed route would cross. Locals and elected officials have pressed the company to route it along the I-88 corridor to minimize the impact on the landscape. This so-called, "Route M" will be the main item on the agenda during the meetings this week. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, which must approve the pipeline before construction can start, will hold public hearings later this month. Read the full story at the Watershed Post.
