Stop the Installation of More Fracked Gas Compressors in Our Towns
Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company (TGP) is proposing to expand their fracked gas pipeline system running through North Jersey by building major new gas compressor stations, one in Pennsylvania, and two in New Jersey, in Wantage and West Milford. These compressor stations operate machinery as loud as jet engines and regularly release methane, hydrogen sulfide, and mercury into the air. High-pressure compressors also increase the risk of leaks and catastrophic explosions. None of this gas would even be used in New Jersey. It’s time to say “NO” to out-of-state polluters.
The fight isn't over. We can still stop this dangerous project.
Before TGP can begin construction they must be issued a number of federal and state permits. Governor Murphy has the authority to direct the NJ Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to reject these permits to protect the health and safety of NJ residents. Residents, organizations, and elected leaders at every level of government must call on him to do so. Can you take action with us?
