Algonquin Pipeline Under Scrutiny

The organization Riverkeeper is requesting that an independent consultant complete a study on the proposed Algonquin Pipeline that is set to run through Rockland and Westchester counties. The group released a letter which was sent to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, stating that a study done by Entergy, who operates Indian Point Nuclear Powerplant, was inadequate in assessing the risks of a rupture in the natural gas pipeline. A spokesperson for the company stated that Entergy doesn’t have an opinion on the pipeline expansion, though a the study was completed and concluded that the there was little to no risk to the plant. Many residents and officials in Putnam, Westchester, and Rockland counties have opposed the pipeline, which will run underneath all three. The Department of Environmental Conservation will hold a hearing at the stony point community center on Clunhouse Lane in Stony Point at 6 pm on January 22 for further discussion.
