You can’t say we didn’t see this one coming. Last week the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) ruled that the New York Dept. of Environmental Conservation (DEC) took too long to deny a federal Clean Water Act “Section 401” water crossing permit for the Williams Constitution Pipeline project (see Victory! FERC Overrules NY DEC to Allow Constitution Pipeline). Meaning the project is now back on, approved by FERC itself. As we predicted, the DEC, thoroughly corrupted and politicized by Cuomo himself, says it will “fight” FERC’s ruling.
