Pilgrim Pipeline LLC has proposed a brand new oil pipeline across northern New Jersey that would connect Albany, NY and Linden, NJ. On Oct 21st the company behind the project will be offering their first public presentation. There will be an opportunity for public comment and questions after the presentation!
Pipeline construction would have deleterious effects on both the open spaces and urbanized communities through which it would pass. In the Highlands and other sensitive areas, we would see wetlands destroyed, critical habitats for threatened and endangered species leveled to the ground, and impacts to waterways from more erosion due to construction.
The pipeline will carry North Dakotan Bakken shale oil. Produced through fracking, it is one of the most explosive types of oil in the world. In February the Wall Street Journal compared oil from 86 locations around the world and found Bakken crude oil to be the most explosive. Bringing this fuel into our state endangers our families, property, and environment.
PILGRIM PIPELINE PUBLIC PRESENTATION
WHEN: Tuesday, Oct 21st, 7:30pm
WHERE: Municipal Courthouse, 130 Kinnelon Road, Kinnelon NJ 07405
