City of Peekskill Asks to Intervene in Pipeline Proposal before Federal Energy Regulatory Commission


Peekskill city officials submitted a motion to Intervene Out-of-Time and to be granted Full-Party Status re Algonquin Gas Transmission, LLC under CP14-96.

The city is the representative of the residents who will bear the brunt of the construction of a new, larger pipeline to replace Spectra Energy’s current pipeline to New England markets and ports, they said. Also city officials are concerned about public safety hazards, disruption of traffic, transportation and services, noise generation, air pollution, and the effects on natural resources such as Dickey Brook, along which the city’s water supply is piped.
