The Pinelands Pipeline will cut through the New Jersey Pine Barrens and have negative effects on open space, the environment and wildlife. The 22-mile fracked gas pipeline will run right over the Kirkwood-Cohansey aquifer which is beneath the Pinelands and contains approximately 17 trillion gallons of freshwater. Now a second pipeline is being proposed to cut through the Pinelands. New Jersey Natural Gas (NJNG) is proposing to construct a 30-mile pipeline that will begin in Burlington County New Jersey. The NJNG pipeline will connect to the Transco pipeline in Chesterfield through a compressor station being proposed as part of New Jerseys Expansion project. It’ll transport fracked gas coming from Pennsylvania’sPennEast Pipeline—a 118-mile, 36-inch- diameter pipeline proposed to cut across Pennsylvania.
