NJDEP has heard from us about issues with the Freshwater Wetlands Permit Application.
- See the attached transcript of the comments (PDF) at the November 5, 2018 hearing at Franklin High School.
- By November 20 (the deadline to send comments to NJDEP about this permit), over 1,000 comments were sent.
NJDEP is still reviewing the permit applications and asking Williams/Transco for more information. Permits are needed from NJDEP for Freshwater Wetlands, Flood Hazard Area, Coastal Wetlands and Waterfront Development.
- None of the applications have been deemed to be “technically complete”.
- Applications were received by the NJDEP on June 20, 2018, and they have one calendar year to either grant or deny each permit.
NJDEP stated that there will be another hearing, but the details have not been publicized. We suspect that the next hearing will be in Old Bridge or Sayreville.
