Gasoline pipeline construction in Vestal -- will disturb 7,119 sq.ft. wetland

Please forgive the cross post.

Just spotted this here.

Will disturb 7,119 square feet of wetlands, but
No SEQR review because it's a Type II action.  
Here's a system map in the NE.

This pipeline starts at refineries in Phila.,
and sends refined products (gas, diesel, jet fuel)
into NY.

There is a large storage facility and terminal
in Vestal behind Lowe's. GPS: 42.101109, -76.002701

I've just FOIL'd the application and the permit.
Please do so also if you are interested.
Comment period only until June 30.

Here is how to make a DEC FOIL.
You need to register for an account.
(Free, takes a few minutes).

so this can be reviewed.
