How we are working to stop this project:
As an interstate infrastructure project, Tennessee Gas Pipeline needs to be issued permits from both federal and state agencies before they can begin construction. NJ Governor Phil Murphy can direct the NJ Department of Environmental Protection to reject the permits required for this project.
We must call on Governor Murphy to live up to his climate commitments and stop this project. We must also urge our elected leaders at all levels of government to stand with us in opposition.
Dozens of impacted residents and organizations are organizing to stop this major threat to their communities and our state.
We have been lobbying local councils to pass resolutions in opposition to this project. These resolutions will send a strong message to Governor Murphy.

A map of the pipeline crossing Northern NJ can be found here on Google Earth.. You can see how close you live to the pipeline. The pipeline passes by many houses, schools, and businesses, and even goes under Lake Tappan.
