Forum about Proposed NESE pipeline and Compressor Station 206

  • Sampson G Smith School 1649 Amwell Rd Somerset, New Jersey 08873 (map)

Join us on February 27th to learn about Transco’s new compressor station and pipeline proposal and what we can do to stop it! Transco wants to put a compressor station in Trap Rock Quarry in Franklin Twp. as well as a new pipeline, called the Madison Loop. The proposal includes 3.5 new miles of pipe in Old Bridge and Sayreville and 22 miles under the Raritan Bay. The project is meant to supply National Grid customers in New York and the people of New Jersey will not see any gas from it. Instead, we will face environmental, health, and safety risks from both the compressor station and pipeline. Come out and hear from the experts on why we need to stop this project and how we can work together to do so!

WHAT: The Sierra Club is joining with local citizen and environmental groups for an educational session on how to oppose Compressor Station 206 and the rest of Transco’s proposed Northeast Supply Enhancement Project.

WHEN: Monday, February 27th from 7 to 10 pm
