Pipeline company moves to seize land

Dec 26, 2014 6:11 am
Scott Waldman in Capital New York reports that dozens of property owners in Delaware, Schoharie, and Chenango counties received legal condemnation notices from a pipeline company this week, according to a group that advocates for the owners. The reports says that Williams Companies filed condemnation notices against 73 property owners on the 30-inch Constitution pipeline path near I-88 that will carry natural gas from Pennsylvania, according to Bob Nied, a member of the board of directors for the Center for Sustainable Rural Communities. The owners associated with the group have so far refused the company access to their land. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission received conditional approval for the pipeline earlier in December, and the project still needs water permits from the state Department of Environmental Conservation. A Williams spokesman did not immediately return a request for comment. Read the full story in Capital New York.
