In Your Opinion: Urge DEP To Deny Transco NESE Permits

If all permits are not obtained, the Compressor Station 206 and pipeline near and under the Raritan Bay cannot be built.   The NJDEP is still reviewing permit applications for the Northeast Supply Enhancement (NESE) Project.  Over 300 concerned residents attended the NJDEP Hearing on November 5, and the 3-minute comments were still being made past 11:00 PM.  That was an amazing showing, but more is needed.

The power of many is needed to stop the Northeast Supply Enhancement Project from creating risks to our health and safety.  As Abraham Lincoln said in the Lincoln-Douglas debate of 1858, “Public sentiment is everything.  With public sentiment, nothing can fail; without it, nothing can succeed.”

Now is the time for all who are concerned about Compressor Station 206 to send a comment the NJDEP.

Deadline:  Tuesday, November 20, 2018

This is the last date that the NJDEP will consider comments on the Freshwater Wetlands Permit Application of Williams/Transco for the Compressor Station 206 and part of the pipeline by Raritan Bay.

  • Attached are comments to use to craft your own to send to the NJDEP and copy Governor Murphy.
  • These and other comment sample letters are also posted on the website, scrap-NESE.org.
  • Be sure to type your full name and full address on the comment that you email to the NJDEP – Matthew.resnick@dep.nj.gov and to the Governor –  constituent.relations@nj.gov.
