What to wear
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) Public Hearing regarding the Spectra/Algonquin Incremental Markets (AIM) Natural Gas pipeline, compressor and metering stations expansion project.
Key Points
  • Spectra Energy is proposing to run a new 42 inch pipeline 1.2 miles beneath the Hudson River from Stony Point to Verplanck.  They will then proceed to install a 42 inch diameter pipe from Verplanck, through the Village of Buchanan and continuing through Northern Westchester.  The expanded pipeline will be located within 500 feet of the Buchanan Verplanck School and thousands of private homes in the area.
  • The location of the pipeline within close proximity to the Indian Point Nuclear facility and the dry cask spent rod storage facility, intersecting with 2 high voltage power lines and in close proximity to a significant seismic zone, poses a risk of catastrophic damage with profound long term impacts on the region.
  • The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) continues to move forward with the permitting process for this dangerous infrastructure dismissive of the urgent need for comprehensive, independent and transparent risk assessments and Health Impact Assessment (HIA).  These assessments are imperative and must be completed and fully address all impacts before any decisions are made for potentially permitting this giant high pressure gas pipeline project.
