Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I would first like to say, “Tough times never last. But tough people do.” Pipeliners are some of the toughest and most resilient folks, but we are definitely being tested. We already had many enemies to battle, such as cheap nonunion contractors, biased judges, and extreme environmental protesters.
The Eastern System Upgrade project is a critical expansion of the existing Millennium Pipeline in New York. The project will add nearly 8 miles of looped pipeline in Orange County, provide needed upgrades to a compressor station in Delaware County and construction of a new compressor station in Sullivan County. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued a favorable environmental assessment (EA) in March 2017, indicating the project is on track for a final approval by the end of the year. Timely approval will keep the project on track to begin service in fall 2018.
