KINDER MORGAN SUSPENDS PIPELINE WORK
WE WON–So goodbye Northeast Direct Pipeline! This ill-advised and environmentally questionable natural gas pipeline project was withdrawn by its sponsors last spring, and that represents a great victory for the Merrimack River Watershed and everyone who lives here. We are especially grateful to the many who worked tirelessly to stop the project, including the many conservation and citizen organizations, state and local officials, and private citizens who spoke at meetings of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC, the agency that reviews interstate gas pipelines), or sent in comments. MRWC was happy to play a part in the fight, and applaud the huge effort that so many folks put in.
Well done, all!
