Williams Transco has proposed a 23.4 mile pipeline to expand its existing transmission system to transport natural gas from the Marcellus Shale through Raritan Bay to New York. If built, the pipeline will disrupt YOUR fishing, boating, and recreational activities.  Construction of the pipeline would also disturb 14,000 acres of habitat for clams, horseshoe crabs, fish, and other marine animals. This is also a step backward for our energy policy & the environment by committing the region to more fossil fuel infrastructure projects that are unnecessary and make it more difficult for renewables to enter the market. Clean Ocean Action Clean Water Action New Jersey ReThink Energy NJBayshore Regional Watershed Council
