Pinelands Commission VOTE - NJNG Pipeline and Wharton Resolution (Sept 14- Trenton NJ)

Pinelands Commission VOTE - NJNG Pipeline and Wharton Resolution (Sept 14- Trenton NJ)

  • Patriots Theater at the War Memorial (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

NOTE - THIS IS A NEW TIME AND LOCATION FOR THIS MEETING.


Pack the house to oppose the pipeline and protect the Pinelands!

The Pinelands Commission intends to vote on whether or not to approve the application by New Jersey Natural Gas to construct a high pressure pipeline through a portion of the Pinelands. The Commissioners need to see a room packed full of Pinelands Supporters. They have to cast their vote in front of you.

The New Jersey Natural Gas Southern Reliability Link pipeline is a 30-mile, 30" diameter, 722 psi gas transmission pipeline slated to be routed from Chesterfield, in Burlington County, through the Pinelands to Manchester, in Ocean County. This pipeline is associated with the Garden StateExpansion, which includes a new compressor station in Chesterfield. These projects put the health and resources of residents, our ecosystem, and our environmental regulations at risk. 

The Commission needs eight affirmative votes to move this project forward (there are a total of 15 Commissioners). A recusal or abstention counts as a no vote. 

In spite of the turmoil around the NJNG Gas Pipeline, the Pinelands Commission could also take a very positive action on September, 14th. For the first time in its history, the full Commission will be presented with a resolution that would greatly reduce the harm being done by off-road vehicles in the heart of the Pinelands National Reserve - Wharton State Forest. If passed, the Wharton Resolution will have the force of effect to designate only those sand roads marked on the USGS map as being available for use by motorized vehicles. This map of Wharton will be made available to the public and will present a great public access benefit to those who are seeking a reliable and responsible way to explore its 122,800 acres of preserved open space.

Join us for a film screening of Mann v. Ford, the story of the Ramapough Lenape Nation's epic battle against two American giants: the Ford Motor Company and the Environmental Protection Agency, which failed to ensure that Ford cleaned the land of deadly toxins and erroneously declared the community safe and clean of toxic waste. Following the movie will be a discussion led by Ramapough tribal members and storytelling by the fire. Free will suggested donation of $5-15 (no one will be turned away).

Mann v. Ford movie trailer: http://www.hbo.com/documentaries/mann-v-ford/video/trailer.html?autoplay=true

-----

The Ramapough Mountain Indians have lived in the hills and forests of northern New Jersey, less than 40 miles from midtown Manhattan, for hundreds of years. In the 1960s, their neighbor in nearby Mahwah, the Ford Motor Company, bought their land and began dumping toxic waste in the woods and abandoned iron mines surrounding their homes.

Ford has acknowledged the dumping. In the 1980s, the Ramapough’s homeland was placed on the Environmental Protection Agency’s list of federally monitored Superfund sites – and supposedly cleaned up by Ford. However, thousands of tons of toxic waste were left behind.

In 2006, the residents of Upper Ringwood, after suffering for years from a range of mysterious ailments, including deadly cancers, skin rashes and high rates of miscarriage, filed a mass action lawsuit seeking millions of dollars from Ford as compensation for their suffering. Ford denied all responsibility for the illnesses devastating the community and claimed its flawed cleanup had fully complied with all EPA rules.

Can't make it but want to help? Please consider donating to the Split Rock Sweetwater Prayer Camp Protectors Defense Fund and sharing widely. We are in URGENT need of funds to cover legal fees: https://fundly.com/split-rock-sweetwater-prayer-camp-protectors-defense-fund.

BACKGROUND:

Since October 2016, under the leadership of the Ramapough Lenape Nation, Split Rock Sweetwater Prayer Camp has been holding space and leading the fight against the proposed Pilgrim Pipeline, a 178-mile pipeline that would carry up to 200,000 barrels of crude oil per day from Albany, New York to Linden, New Jersey endangering local water supplies, sacred sites, and essential wetlands.

Unfortunately, the presence of Split Rock Sweetwater Prayer Camp has exposed deeper issues surrounding indigenous sovereignty, land rights, freedom of religion, and discrimination against the Ramapough Lenape Nation. Water and land protectors at Split Rock Sweetwater Prayer Camp have experienced harassment, intimidation, and false accusations on an ongoing basis from the Town of Mahwah and surrounding Polo Club neighbors. 

Now, coincidentally, three protectors have been charged in connection to alleged vandalism near Split Rock Sweetwater Prayer including Ramapough Lenape Nation Tribal Chief, Dwaine Perry.

NJNG Pipeline - Pinelands Commission Public Comment Meeting
Jul

NJNG Pipeline - Pinelands Commission Public Comment Meeting

Pack the house to oppose the pipeline!

The New Jersey Natural Gas Southern Reliability Link pipeline is a 30-mile, 30" diameter, 722 psi gas transmission pipeline slated to be routed from Chesterfield, in Burlington County, through the Pinelands to Manchester, in Ocean County. This pipeline is associated with the Garden State Expansion, which includes a new compressor station in Chesterfield. These projects put the health and resources of residents, our ecosystem, and our environmental regulations at risk. 

The Pinelands Commission is a group of 15 individuals appointed to uphold the Comprehensive Management Plan (CMP), the rules put in place to protect the Pinelands. 

Please come and explain your objections to the project and how the pipeline violates the CMP.

A few of these violations:

1. The current route goes through the Pinelands Preservation Area designated by the Pinelands Protection Act. This route is unnecessary and could instead go through the less sensitive Pinelands Protection Area. In cases such as this one, where a route through the Protection Area is feasible, it is required by the CMP.

2. The pipeline is not needed, and thus is not genuinely associated with the needs of Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst. The Joint Base is unable to tap into a 30", 722 psi pipeline without major infrastructure, and NJNG has no intention to modify the system in the near future. Additionally, neither NJNG or the Board of Public Utilities has conducted a reliability analysis that shows that this project is necessary for the base or for the system as a whole. Independent expert reports have demonstrated that the project is unnecessary

3. The pipeline fails to meet essential water resource protections outlined in the CMP. The route runs through two Superfund sites for which the EPA has required specific remediation actions. It is essential to avoid any possible resuspension or spread of contaminants within these areas. Available data on contamination and site geology in these areas and throughout the route is insufficient to ensure the safety of construction and operation of the pipeline. 

Learn more about the pipeline here: http://www.pinelandsalliance.org/protection/hotissues/development/njnatgasline/ 

Comments may also be submitted in writing to the commission at njngcomment@njpines.state.nj.us until 5pm on August 2, 2017.

Rally/March to Protect Delaware River Basin from Fracking
Jul
25
12:00pm12:00pm

Rally/March to Protect Delaware River Basin from Fracking

We need you to come out to march and rally Governor Christie to protect the Delaware River basin from fracking! We are coming together on Tuesday, July 25th to call on our Governor to make the temporary moratorium on fracking in the basin permanent. We are rallying for the river because it provides drinking water to 17 million people. Nearly seven years ago, the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) put in a temporary moratorium on fracking in the Basin. We are concerned, however, that there are attempts being made to lift the moratorium given what’s happening in Washington. With the Fossil Fool in the White House, the Delaware River could be threatened with fracking and more pipeline proposals. 

Join us on Tuesday, July 25th outside the State Annex Building for a rally and march at the Archives Building to the Governors new office since he is spending $300 million renovating the Statehouse. Thousands of people have come out to ban fracking in the Basin and we need to keep coming out to protect our water!

Around four years ago, there was a proposal to lift the moratorium and adopt weak rules on fracking. When the moratorium was put in place, there were plans for more than 10,000 fracking wells in the Delaware River Basin. Fracking would require hundreds of billions of gallons of water pumped underground with toxic chemicals. These fracking fluids would destroy our pristine streams and cause the loss of tens of thousands of acres of forests. Our forests would be even more fractured by increased pipelines with hundreds of new proposals in the region. This would destroy the basin turning the Delaware River Valley into Oklahoma. 

Recently, signals from the DRBC staff have raised alarm bells that the Commission may be taking steps to adopt regulations and lift the current moratorium. We must keep public opposition strong against fracking and urge voting members - the Governors of New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, representing the Basin states, and the Army Corps of Engineers, representing the federal government to make the ban permanent. Without a permanent fracking ban, residents in the Delaware River Basin could be faced with well pads, compressor stations, drilling rigs, and countless miles of pipeline construction.

Please come and if you haven’t signed the petition please do so now. If you cannot make the rally, you can comment to protect the Delaware River here: https://secure3.convio.net/scnj/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=1498

Details: Rally, March, and Petition Delivery Outside Governor Christie’s temporary office

Tuesday, July 25th at 12:00 pm, noon. Meet at the Statehouse Annex at 125 W State St #2, Trenton, NJ 08608 and then march to 225 W State St, Trenton, NJ 08608. Petition delivery will be at 12:30 PM.

Please bring a sign to protect the Delaware River against fracking.

Stop Williams Transco Pipeline: Public Meeting

Williams Transco has proposed a 23.4 mile pipeline to expand its existing transmission system to transport natural gas from the Marcellus Shale through Raritan Bay to New York. If built, the pipeline will disrupt YOUR fishing, boating, and recreational activities. 

Construction of the pipeline would also distrub 14,000 acres of habitat for clams, horseshoe crabs, fish, and other marine animals. 

This is also a step backward for our energy policy & the environment by committing the region to more fossil fuel infrastrucutre projects that are unnecesary and make it more difficult for renewables to enter the market.

The New Jersey Natural Gas Southern Reliability Link pipeline is a 30-mile, 30" diameter, 722 psi gas transmission pipeline slated to be routed from Chesterfield, in Burlington County, to Manchester, in Ocean County. This pipeline is associated with the Garden State Expansion, which includes a new compressor station in Chesterfield. These projects put the health and resources of residents, our ecosystem, and our environmental regulations at risk. 

Each Pinelands County has a representative designated to represent them on the Pinelands Commission. Burlington County's representative, Sean Earlen, is the chair of the Commission and voted to approve the South Jersey Gas pipeline in February. He is appointed by the Burlington County Freeholders. 

Many townships and residents within Burlington County have been actively fighting these projects. Burlington County is currently engaged in litigation over the road-opening permits for the pipeline. Concerning this lawsuit, the Freehodler Director stated: "This board will vigorously oppose this attack by New Jersey Natural Gas, just as we have actively opposed the proposed route for this pipeline." 

You can learn more about the county's opposition here
http://www.nj.com/burlington/index.ssf/2016/02/pipeline_company_sues_nj_county_over_road_policies.html 

It is time for the Burlington County Freeholders to act upon these statements and the sentiment of their residents. Tell the freeholders that their representative must vote to reject this pipeline to protect the interests of Burlington County and the integrity of the Pinelands. 

The public comment meeting for the NJNG SRL pipeline is on July 26 at 9:30am at the Pine Belt Arena in Toms River: https://goo.gl/Mpi2vp. Sean Earlen's current term on the Pinelands Commission expires July 27, 2017.

Middlesex County Against Fracked Gas Pipeline

The Middlesex County Board of Freeholders have refused to take a position in opposing the Williams fracked gas pipeline and compressor station through Middlesex & Somerset Counties, and the Raritan Bay. In a time when we have a Presidential administration in the swamp with oil and gas companies, a Governor (Christie) who's never seen a pipeline he doesn't like, the next largest government entity is our Board of Freeholders. A strong resolution of opposition to this project would send a loud message of disapproval to federal regulators. Join us to call on our elected representatives to take action, and pass a resolution.

Pilgrim Pipeline's Impact on Water Presentation, Princeton Hydro

Pilgrim Pipeline's Impact on Water Presentation, Princeton Hydro

We hope you can join us to get an update and learn about the next steps we are taking to stop Pilgrim Pipeline on Tuesday, June 13th! The Pilgrim Pipeline puts our water at risk by cutting through the Highlands region and threatening the water supply for over 3 million people. We are coming together for a town hall to discuss our work with water expert Mark Gallagher of Princeton Hydro to identify the pipeline’s impact to multiple waterbodies it plans to cross. We will use this data to fight any DEP permits, including the Water Quality Certificate, which stopped the Constitution Pipeline in New York. Jeff Tittel, Director of the New Jersey Sierra Club will be speaking at the event.

The presentation will take place Tuesday, June 13th at 7:00 pm at the Chatham Library on 214 Main St, Chatham Township, NJ 07928. We will meet at the Lundt Meeting Room on the lower level of the library.

Pilgrim Pipeline would carry 200,000 barrels of the most flammable crude Bakken oil each day between Albany, New York and Linden, New Jersey. A spill or explosion would be a threaten communities along the route and is a huge public safety threat. However, Bakken crude is transported, it is a disaster waiting to happen. The Pilgrim Pipeline will actually increase Bakken oil being transported on train and barge through our communities. This pipeline would also lead to more air pollution, increase fracking, and further our impact on climate change. 

The New Jersey Sierra Club and the Coalition Against Pilgrim Pipeline has worked with independent water experts at Princeton Hydro to conduct an environmental analysis of Pilgrim’s impacts to water quality in an effort to fight various NJDEP permits required for approval. The company has yet to file applications for permits in New Jersey, but these findings will help us be prepared when and if they do.

Please encourage your Mayors, Council Members, Environmental Commissioners, or any other town representatives to join us. To learn more about Pilgrim Pipeline and the proposed route please visit: https://stoppilgrimpipeline.com/

To RSVP please contact Toni Granato at toni.granato@sierraclub.org

Roselle Pilgrim Pipelines Forum
Apr
25
7:00pm 7:00pm

Roselle Pilgrim Pipelines Forum

Join us for a forum on the Pilgrim Pipelines proposal. Come learn about your rights as an impacted landowner and community member, and what we can do locally to stop this dirty and dangerous project before it starts.

Pilgrim Pipeline LLC is proposing to build 2 major oil pipelines through through 30 towns in Northern NJ including Roselle and neighboring Union County towns. This pipeline proposal has yet to receive any permits from our state regulators, so now is the time to educate ourselves and organize our communities to stop it before it starts.

This event is open to anyone who wants to learn about pipelines, and especially "hazardous liquids" oil pipelines and how they impact our communities

Speakers: Ken Dolsky, Coalition Against Pilgrim Pipelines
Matt Smith, Food & Water Watch

Co-host: Roselle Area NAACP, Green Party of Union County and Food & Water Watch.

Indigenous Flood - United Nations : NYC - Come to New York!
Apr
24
to May 5

Indigenous Flood - United Nations : NYC - Come to New York!

The Flood never came to Standing Rock, so let's bring the Flood to the United Nations. 

From April 24th to May 5th the United Nations in New York City is holding the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, also known as PFII. Typically, these forums lack Native American representation, and often have Non-Natives speaking on behalf of Natives and their issues. This ends now. 

For two weeks, we need to show New York, The UN, and the world that Indigenous People are here, and can speak for themselves. 

The world will not forget what happened at Standing Rock. The world will no longer ignore the conditions on reservations, and the issues effecting indigenous people around the globe. 3/4 of the world's population are indigenous, and it's time they stop forgetting that. 

There are multiple levels of events within this forum, some more exclusive than others. We want to come out in full force at every level. From top to bottom. From panels at the UN headquarters to flash mob round dances in Time Square, we are going to Flood New York City. 

Whether you are registered for the forum or not, we are asking for all indigenous people and allies to come to New York City and show your support. As the strongest of warriors take the United Nations to speak, they will have the support of their brothers and sisters outside, praying, singing, marching and standing in solidarity. 

Thousands came to Standing Rock. Thousands came to DC. And we can do the same in New York City. 

We are planning a plethora of events, from demonstrations, to speaking engagements, to gatherings and dances and celebrations. For two weeks, let's make New York City our new home. 

More details to come as this develops and grows. 

If you would like to register your own group for the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (PFII) in New York City. http://bit.ly/PFIIRegistration
