PennEast Pipeline Education and Empowerment Forum

Date: Monday, September 15, 2014
Time: 7:00 PM
Presented by: New Jersey Chapter
Leader: Kate Millsaps - kate.millsaps@sierraclub.org
Location: Pittore Justice Center, City Court Room, 25 South Union Street, Lambertville, NJ

 

NJ Sierra Club and Delaware Riverkeeper Network will be hosting an important educational forum on the PennEast Pipeline in Lambertville.

Join us to learn more about the pipeline proposal and what the project means for our local community.  We will discuss natural gas pipelines and the detrimental impacts they are having on New Jersey. 

The pipeline will cross the Delaware River in Holland Township and then travel south through Hunterdon and Mercer Counties, ending in Hopewell. 

These pipelines can damage our water quality, clear cut our forests and impact residential communities to carry polluting fossil fuels to distant locations. The PennEast pipeline will cut across the Delaware River and a number of other important waterways, and a number of preserved lands.  Drillers in the Marcellus Shale are increasing their supply and need more capacity to move it to market, even though the supply is more than regional demand. 

If we are to stop this pipeline, we need to fight together!  Join us on September 15th to learn more about how we can oppose the pipeline and defend our community and environment. Only by Standing Together Will We Win!!

Free parking can be found south of the Center on Union St and on Swan Street. Ferry Street and the parking lot next to the Center are metered. Meters go until 9 pm.  Please pay your meter ($1/hour) to avoid getting a ticket.

At the event there will be a short presentation on the PennEast pipeline proposal and the implications such infrastructure could have for our community. Following the educational discussion we will break out into groups to discuss different actions we can take now to oppose this project.   

Please RSVP for the event by sending an email to kate.millsaps@sierraclub.org.

Look forward to seeing you on September 15th.
