On February 1, 2019, National Grid filed a petition with the New York Public Service Commission for a “Certificate of Environmental Compatibility and Public Need” (i.e. permission to build and operate) for a tiny 16-inch, 7.3-mile natural gas transmission pipeline.

Opposition by radical green supporters continues to mount, with those opposing calling it a “fracked gas pipeline.”
