Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Company LLC (Transco) is planning a Gas Compressor Station in Chesterfield, NJ (and adjacent to Bordentown, NJ) which will feed into a proposed New Jersey Natural Gas (NJNG) "Southern Reliability Link" (a 30" High Pressure Gas Pipeline) through Chesterfield, North Hanover, Upper Freehold, Plumsted and Manchester Townships. These projects involve serious safety concerns, pollution and health related issues. Please click here for more information about our fight.
This site was designed to provide guidance for the actions and tools needed to stop these projects. Current information is listed below.
GO FUND ME: People Over Pipelines was established to help fight the proposed Garden State Expansion project along with the Southern Reliability Link Pipeline. These projects threaten our communities in NJ as well as the NJ Pinelands, an international biosphere reserve, and home of the 17 trillion gallon Kirkwood Cohansey aquifer containing some of the purest water in the United States. Our funding has been slim and mainly from members of our group. We need additional funding to help offset expenses of attorney fees. There are people along the route who are dangerously close to both the compressor(s) and the pipeline proposed who we need to help with legal expenses but we can't do this without your help. Please consider giving whatever you can to the cause. We will continue to fight the battle until the last appeal is lost. Thank you!
Meetings are held every other Monday @6:30 at the Friends meeting house in Crosswicks, NJ - Next meeting is April 16, 2018
