NJ LEAGUE OF CONSERVATION VOTERS STATEMENT TELLING NJDEP TO REJECT COMPRESSOR AND PIPELINE PROJECT UNDER RARITAN BAY
“Williams Transco is at it again. They’re refiling for a permit from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection to build an unneeded and dangerous compressor station and gas pipeline going under Raritan Bay, which will serve no other purpose than to contribute to our existing air pollution problem,” said Ed Potosnak, Executive Director, New Jersey LCV. “This project provides no public need in the state of New Jersey, and will destroy nearby vital and critically important environmental areas. It also goes against everything Governor Murphy and all of us who are concerned about the environment are working for. We strongly urge the NJDEP to deny all the permits related to this project.”
New Jersey League of Conservation Voters is a non-partisan organization whose mission is to elect environmental champions, hold public officials accountable, and support laws which protect our environment and improve the quality of people’s lives.
