Algonquin Pipeline Approved by FERC

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission approved the Algonquin Pipeline on Tuesday, issuing a certificate that will allow Spectra Engery to construct their planned natural gas pipeline. Many residents throughout the Hudson Valley have protested the project, stating that it would harm both the environment and property values in the area. According to the agency the pipeline would stretch from New York to Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts, to carry natural gas from Ramapo to those areas. Recently the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and Indian Point operators released studies that show there would be no threat to, or from, the pipeline where it nears the power plant. The state Department of Environmental Conservation has to issue permits for the project in New York before work can begin.
