There are only a few more days to let DEP know why they should reject permits for NESE with its Compressor Station 206 in Franklin Township and pipeline under Raritan Bay.

The DEP can stop it if they deny the permits again and do so “with prejudice”.  Go to the following to send your personal message to the DEP by copying and pasting key points and adding your own concerns.

The deadline for sending comments is Friday, August 23.

As Benjamin Franklin said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” 

Many comments will make a difference and, after the hottest July on record, it’s time for the DEP to follow their regulations and deny the NESE Project’s permit applications since NESE threatens our health and safety.
