SATURDAY — FEBRUARY 28, 2015 — NASSAU, NY
PIPELINE PUBLIC FORUM.  A public forum will be held  on the high-pressure fracked gas pipeline proposed by Kinder Morgan/Tennessee Gas (KM/TGP).  Since the power lines and proposed pipeline would be “co-located” at the Nassau Sportsman Club, this is a dangerous mix. In addition, there may be new restrictions on weapons use, target shooting, archery, snowmobiling, ATV’s, and direct impact on fishing and other activities at the Club’s lake.
There will be other discussions about the health, safety, and environmental concerns of such a pipeline and an associated compressor station which pushes the high-pressure fracked gas through the pipeline. This 90,000 horsepower compressor unit is sited for Nassau/Schodack area.
Added to the safety issues are health concerns involving the  chemicals that the fracked gas carries. Although one type of fracking is prohibited in New York because toxins associated with the fracking process have adverse impacts on air, soil, and water, transporting fracked gas from Pennsylvania through New York is not prohibited.
One issue to be addressed is what called “the incineration zone,” the area along a pipeline and compressor station within which people, animals, farms, gardens, homes, property, wells, aquifers, schools, places of worship, wells etc. are at high risk due to an explosion.
New Yorkers will be taking all the related economic risks too without any substantial benefit. New York will receive NONE of this gas for consumption.
It is believed that the powerline company and KM/TGP are negotiating a deal whereby KM/TGP would use the powerline right of way in Rensselaer County.
SNYFGP will outline “actions” choices for citizens detailing practical steps to stop this behemoth proposal.

Public is invited and the event and parking are free of charge:
Noon – 3:00 pm
