South Jersey Gas Pipeline
South Jersey Gas is proposing to put a natural gas pipeline through a portion of the Pinelands Forest Management Area. The proposal would place 22 miles of 24-inch pipeline through Atlantic, Cape May, and Cumberland Counties in order to provide the B.L. England Plant located in Beesley's Point, Cape May County with natural gas.
The construction of the SJG pipeline will cause long term harm to Pinelands forests and waterways: habitat loss, compaction of soils, more runoff and erosion in waterways, changes to hydrogeology potentially impacting aquifers and groundwater. The Pinelands is a national treasure and provider of clean drinking water to millions of state residents and home to a trillion gallon aquifer.
Clean Water Action has joined a coalition of over 40 organizations to stop the pipeline from being built. Our 40 organizations represent hundreds of thousands of New Jerseyans and voters who also oppose the pipeline..
The governor rejec
Liberty Natural Gas (Liberty LNG) is once again trying to place a hazardous LNG port (called "Port Ambrose") off the NY/NJ coast (the project was vetoed in 2011 by Gov. Christie) -- just 28 miles from Sandy Hook and 18 miles off Jones Beach, NY.
Liberty LNG is proposing to create a deepwater port that would bring combustible liquefied natural gas (LNG) tankers to the NY/NJ region. Under the Deepwater Port Act, this LNG facility could be used for both import and export.
