Vermont Gas to defend natural gas pipeline at two-day hearing

Vt Digger - - 12:40 pm Mon Jun 22nd, 2015

The Public Service Board will hold hearings on Monday and Tuesday to decide whether the state should take away permits it gave Vermont Gas Systems to build a pipeline from Colchester to Middlebury.

At issue is whether the pipeline, which has seen cost estimate increases of 77 percent since it was initially approved by the board, will benefit the public at large.

The board issued a certificate of public good to the company in December 2013 to build Phase I of the Addison Rutland Natural Gas Project - an $86.6 million pipeline that would carry natural gas 41 miles from Chittenden County to industrial customers and homeowners in Addison County.
