Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association (SBMWA) and Hopewell Township Citizens Against the PennEast Pipeline (HTCAPP) will hold a public meeting to advise residents about how they can participate if PennEast files an application with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for its proposed pipeline that would run through Mercer and Hunterdon Counties. PennEast has said in news reports that it plans to file the application in mid-September.
The meeting will be held on Tues., Sept. 15 at 7:00 p.m and is open to residents from both counties. It will be held at the Watershed Center for Environmental Advocacy, Science, and Education at Stony Brook Millstone Watershed Association, 31 Titus Mill Road, Pennington.
Speakers will include Jim Waltman, executive director, SBMWA, Mike Pisauro, policy director, SBMWA and Mike Spille, West Amwell Citizens Against the Pipeline. They will discuss the FERC process, what it means to be an intervenor and how to become one, and the deadlines for filing for intervention. The speakers will also provide an update about activities that have been taken to date to stop the pipeline as well as what has been accomplished and what more residents can do.
