Thank you to everybody who came out to the hearings with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation earlier this month. We were very impressed with the great turnout at these meetings everybody’s willingness to participate in the discussion.
The NY DEC hearings were for the water body crossings permits. This was a forum that allowed the public to comment on record.
Here’s a quick recap from the hearings:
- Binghamton, NY: Nearly 250 people were in attendance. Many in the room were supporters of Williams’ Constitution pipeline project. Many of the comments issued were in favor of Williams to obtain its DEC permits.
- Oneonta, NY: Approximately 475 attended this hearing. More than 60 individuals participated in the discussion.
- Cobleskill, NY: Great turnout with about 300 in attendance. Similar to the previous hearings, participants had an opportunity to provide their comments on record.
Thank you to our supporters who came out to the meetings and provided comments.
