During the first 30-day comment period (Nov. 17th – Dec. 17th) 29 entities spoke up in a strong show of force opposing this dreadful project. These include: Albany, Athens, Bethlehem, Catskill, Cornwall, Coxsackie, Esopus, Harriman, Kingston, Lloyd, New Baltimore, New Paltz, New Windsor, Newburgh (City), Newburgh (Town), Plattekill, Ramapo, Rosendale, Saugerties, Tuxedo, and Tuxedo Park. Also: Greene County, Rockland County, Ulster County, and the Ulster County Association of Town Supervisors and Mayors. See some of the resolutions and letters here.
When the DEC announced on Dec. 21 that it would be the co-lead agency with the Thruway Authority, municipalities started sending a second round of letters to the DEC objecting to this decision. New Paltz sent a formal challenge to the DEC Commissioner to have him resolve the dispute. During the resulting comment period, Rosendale, Plattekill, Cornwall, Newburgh, and many others supported New Paltz’ action. Here are some of the letters.

I noticed Maplewood, NJ isn’t on the list. That’s unexpected, is that a typo, or have they not passed a resolution?
Maplewood is not on or very near the pipeline route, so they were not specifically approached about passing a resolution.
It’s not on the route, but does it get its drinking water from the sources that would be in jeapordy if the pipeline happened? Would there be any value in encouraging Maplewood to pass a resolution as well?
Yes, we encourage other towns to use the resolutions posted on our site as models for a resolution that they can also adopt.
