TUESDAY — FEBRUARY 28, 2017 — SANDISFIELD, MA
Kinder Morgan at Sandisfield Conservation Commission Meeting. There are still outstanding issues with the Order of Conditions with the Conservation Commission. A representative for Kinder Morgan will be attending the next Sandisfield Conservation Commission meeting as they are on the agenda to discuss the CT Expansion pipeline project. KM has renewed its request to FERC for a Limited Notice to Proceed with tree felling in Sandisfield/Otis State Forest as they appear to be anxious to complete tree felling before March 31st, during the “environmentally preferred window” related to migratory birds. In their most recent Biweekly Status Report, they again claimed to have “received all federal permits needed for tree felling.” That’s not quite true. Your presence at the meeting this month will let the company know that the people of Massachusetts will not just step aside for this pipeline. Public comments are not allowed. There is no need to speak, though. It is people showing up to listen and witness that is really needed.

TUESDAY — FEBRUARY 28, 2017 — W. ROXBURY, MA
Safety Information Meeting on the West Roxbury Lateral Pipeline (WRL). West Roxbury Saves Energy (WRSE) is holding a SAFETY INFORMATION MEETING with the Community Liaison Representative from the Pipeline Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), an agency of the U.S. Department of Transportation.

Now that the pipeline is operational (since January, though the City’s legal appeal in D.C. is still pending), PHMSA has oversight of regulations pipeline operators like Spectra and National Grid must follow, including plans that would involve our “first responders,” as our Police and Fire Commissioners have requested.

To the best of our knowledge, Spectra and/or National Grid have failed to comply with many of these regulations–including, prior to the commencement of pipeline operations–the preparation of emergency plans. This meeting is therefore an opportunity to bring these concerns to the attention of the PHMSA representative in person and learn what enforcement actions PHMSA can and will take.
2 pm
