Major Opposition Against Constitution Pipeline From Upstate New Yorkers

PIPELINERThe Constitution Pipeline is a major cause of concern for some New York homeowners whose land and lives would be disrupted if the pipeline is built on their property. Williams Partners, LP in a joint venture with Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation, would funnel gas from the Marcellus Shale in Susquehanna County Pennsylvania to Schoharie County in New York. Under eminent domain, the project has the go-ahead for government to use private land for public use which some homeowners are fighting. Anne Marie Garti is a lawyer representing the homeowners holding out on construction. The pipeline submitted its first drafts in 2012 receiving the Federal Energy Regulatory Commision’s approval last December. Garti is part of the organization, Stop The Pipeline, which cites environmental impacts, negative effects from fracking, loss of property value, and mortgage and insurance difficulties as the basis for staunch opposition to the construction project.
