NJDEP to PennEast: Pipeline Denied

In a strongly worded letter to PennEast, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection denied a freshwater wetlands permit sought by the pipeline company.  The Conditional Certificate that FERC recently issued for PennEast clearly states that the pipeline can’t proceed without permits from NJDEP.

Tom Gilbert, campaign director, New Jersey Conservation Foundation said, “PennEast wants to put a polluting, dangerous pipeline across dozens of pure streams and rivers that are the source of our drinking water…  If PennEast reapplies to NJDEP, we are confident that their damaging pipeline won’t be able to meet the strict standards that project our water and natural resources.”
