Re: Urgent! 911! Fenton (& Vestal) Bomb Trucks! RALLY Tue @ 5:30 (bring signs!)

Just a quick update. It's NOT GOOD.

Town of Fenton ZBA first approved a small site variance.

Then the Planning Board unanimously approved (with one abstention) the site plan for the MONSTEROUS 12-Compressor "Bomb Truck" terminal, despite objections and safety concerns of the community, the School Board, and the Supervisor for the Town of Port DIckenson.

They determined this was a Type-II SEQR action, so trivial as to not require any environmental review (except for filling out a short form).

This is VERY BAD for ALL NY, because these trucks can go anywhere.
One rep from the company admitted they were doing a "virtual transmission line" exactly like we have observed XNG doing between Forest Lake PA and Manheim NY, meaning, they take it out from one pipe, and inject it into another.
He could not name ONE local customer for this gas, despite saying delivering to local customers was their primary business model.

There is NO REGULATION WHATSOEVER of this facility, other than town and county zoning and planning, which all signed off on the project.

  • NYS DOT: No special regulation
  • FERC: no regulation (despite clear jurisdiction under Natural Gas Act)
  • PHMSA / Federal DOT: no special regulation
  • NO federal environmental review under National Environmental Policy Act
  • NO NY State environmental review under SEQRA.
Have a nice day.

So Industry has found a way to ship 650k MCF/day WITHOUT A PIPELINE! And without ANY REGULATION and without ANY PUBLIC HEARINGS!!!

This guy BRAGS about being "unregulated"!!

Friends, if you know any attorneys willing to take this on, we have 60 days to file a legal challenge.

This is very very very very bad.....

If you have any ideas, or can assist review of the paperwork, please call or email me.

Friends, these Bomb Trucks are a REALLY BIG DEAL.
They are building Pipelines now WITH TRUCKS,
and there is almost NO REGULATION!

Industry guy BRAGS this mode of transport is Unregulated:

This will impact ALL NEW YORKERS!

These sites are being billed as for local businesses,
but these trucks are SHIPPING CONTAINERS, so is potentially
a site for North American EXPORT.
