Pipeline opponents warn of water contamination

Vt Digger - - 8:59 am Tue Jun 10th, 2014

Opponents of a proposed natural gas pipeline extension through Addison County want to see the project put on hold until concerns over water contamination are addressed.

The environmental group Rising Tide Vermont rallied outside the Public Service Board offices in Montpelier on Monday to pressure state regulators to delay the construction of the pipeline extension until these concerns are considered.

Jonathan Shapiro, an organizer with Rising Tide, said the group is asking for the state "to suspend pipeline construction until there can be adequate soil testing along the proposed route."
