Say No to NESE!
Unfortunately, the Northeast Supply Enhancement (NESE) pipeline is back threatening NJ with contaminating the air, water, wetlands, and threatening the marine life. Williams/Transco NESE was denied all six of the permits for the pipeline on June 5, 2019. The NJ-DEP based the denial on the applicant's failure to meet strict legal requirements. The offshore section of the pipeline was denied based on the re-suspension of toxic-sediment which violated standards for arsenic, manganese, mercury, PCBs, and DEE. Nevertheless, Williams/Transco was allowed to reapply and they did so on June 10, 2019. We have until the end of Friday, August 23, 2019 to make a public comment .
We need as many people as possible to comment against this unnecessary NESE project! Comment today or by the end of Friday, August 23, 2019! Here are some links to sign a petition or send a letter:
