RALLY: Stop a Fracked Gas Pipeline - Preserve Waterways and Wetlands

Stop the Northern Access 2016 Pipeline

WHAT: Rally at National Fuel Headquarters

WHEN: Wednesday, July 27, 3pm - 6pm

WHERE: 6363 Main St., Williamsville

The Pendleton Action Team and the Sierra Club Niagara Group are joining up to fight the building of a 96 mile fracked gas pipeline, compressor and dehydration stations proposed by National Fuel for Western NY.

Earlier this year, NYS DEC officials rejected the Constitution Pipeline Project, citing damage that it would do to water supplies along the pipeline route.

On that basis alone, the proposed Northern Access Project should not be permitted since it would cross 180 streams, 270 wetlands and 7 ponds in Cattaraugus, Allegany, and Erie Counties.

To add insult to potential injury, the gas would not only cross the Niagara River, it will be exported to Canada.

Furthermore, we need to incentivize infrastructure for Clean, Renewable Energy, not for dirty fossil fuels that cause carbon pollution and global warming.

Check out the Pendleton Action Team on Facebook for more information.
