Constitution Pipeline Postponement

March 10th, 2016

"Constitution Pipeline, LLC has been denied the grant for a Section 401 Water Quality Certification under the Clean Water Act for its federally approved natural gas pipeline. Construction of the 124 mile Constitution Pipeline for the Southern Tier was denied the required permit by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) due to water contamination concerns. The company has since filed an action with the U. S. District Court for the Northern District of New York seeking a declaration that the State of New York’s authority to exercise permitting jurisdiction over certain environmental matters is prevented by federal law."
