DEC Statement Regarding Appeal of FERC Decision on Millennium Pipeline Company's Valley Lateral Project

Today the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) filed a formal challenge to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (FERC) decision that DEC waived its jurisdiction under the federal Clean Water Act for the Millennium Pipeline Company's proposed Valley Lateral project. FERC should not, and cannot, be allowed to undercut the State's ability to protect our water resources by making informed decisions to ensure water quality standards are met. DEC demands that FERC refrain from authorizing Millennium to commence construction of the project while DEC's appeal is heard. DEC is committed to ensuring the protection of New York's natural resources, and will continue to vigorously defend its right to do so.

For more information on the state's appeal see the following letter (link leaves DEC's website).
