Schoharie farmers to voice concern over controversial Constitution pipeline

SCHOHARIE, N.Y. – The DEC has extended the public comment period on permits for a controversial pipeline that would run through Schoharie County.

The government has already green-lit the Constitution Pipeline to carry low cost natural gas from Pennsylvania to New York City and the northeast. But it still needs state permits related to air and water quality and wetlands protection.

Public comments will now be accepted through February, giving Schoharie farmers, who are against losing their land to eminent domain, more time to state their case against it.

A public hearing will be held Wednesday at SUNY Cobleskill.
