Petitions To Rehear Algonquin Pipeline Expansion

Local activists have filed petitions against the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission accusing them of approving the Algonquin natural gas pipeline that violates federal laws. They allege that the Clean Water Act was violated as the pipeline was approved without first receiving a water quality certificate. The pipeline would run through Ramapo up through Westchester and Putnam Counties where individuals argue that FERC has not addressed the environmental and health concerns of building close to a nuclear facility. Activists demand that a pipeline built near densely populated areas warrants a full rehearing. Groups will consider legal action if FERC rejects the requests for rehearing.
