Because of public outcry, DEP extended public comments on
NESE permits. Now it is even more important for people to say no to this
damaging project. Williams
Transco wants to put a new compressor station in Franklin Township and connect
a pipeline that would go into the Raritan Bay. We need everyone to tell the NJDEP that they must deny Williams/Transco
permits again to build this dangerous project that would create air and water
pollution and safety concerns!
The Northeast Supply Enhancement
Project (NESE) project starts with a 32,000 horsepower compressor
station on 52 acres in the Trap Rock Quarry. It also proposes more pipeline:
3.5 new miles of pipe in Old Bridge and Sayreville and 22 miles under the
denied NESE permits in June without prejudice, which is why Transco
was able to reapply with after they were denied. The NESE project was rejected by DEP
because the it could not meet the Surface Water Quality Standards. We
believe they cannot meet those standards again. NESE would
have tremendous negative impacts on New Jersey’s waterways. Construction would
disrupt 1 million cubic yards of contaminated sediment, putting toxic chemicals
into the bay.
THE NESE PROJECT WOULD BRING NATURAL GAS ACROSS OUR STATE AND
This is our one chance to tell the
DEP that they must do their job to protect the environment and reject this
compressor station and pipeline application for any permits!
DEP, Protect our Public Safety and Environment, Reject NESE!
Dear [Decision Maker],
I am writing to request action from the NJDEP on Transco's proposed Northeast Supply Enhancement Project (NESE). I urge the DEP to deny Transco's permit applications, including all Land Use Management and Coastal Use Management permits. I am opposed to the NESE project and have serious concerns about the environmental and safety consequences of it.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
