DO SOMETHING YOU’LL BE THANKFUL FOR
Speak up for the health, safety & environment of your family, friends and future generations.
Deadline: Tuesday, November 20, 2018
This is the last date that the NJDEP will consider comments on the Freshwater Wetlands Permit Application of Williams/Transco for the Compressor Station 206 and onland part of the pipeline by Raritan Bay.
- Attached are comments to use to craft your own to send to the NJDEP and copy Governor Murphy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Make sure to type your full name and full address on the comment that you send to Matthew.email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
REMEMBER: If all permits are not obtained, the Compressor Station 206 and pipeline near and under the Raritan Bay cannot be built.
Over 300 concerned residents went to the NJDEP Hearing on November 5, and the 3-minute comments were still being made past 11:00 PM. That was an amazing showing, but more is needed.
As Abraham Lincoln said in the Lincoln-Douglas debate of 1858,
“Public sentiment is everything.
With public sentiment, nothing can fail; without it, nothing can succeed.”
This is the time for all to make their concerns known to the NJDEP. The power of many is needed to stop the Northeast Supply Enhancement Project from creating risks to our health and safety. Every comment matters!

As Margaret Mead said,
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful concerned citizens can change the world.
Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.”
