FERC’s “Less-Than-Significant” = “Very Significant” to the Rest of Us
Less-than-significant impact? You be the judge. Each of these pipelines will require compressor stations to either be built or expanded. Compressor stations can be nuisances in the communities where they are located because of the intense and constant noise and air pollutants emitted on a regular basis. They can also be a public safety hazard in that emissions of odorless and colorless, but toxic and highly explosive gas can occur. More

It’s not rocket science. We need a public water system. We need to revoke this greedy, inept, arrogant company’s charter. We need this public commission to show some basic leadership, and not play to these negotiations, but do your job, and show them the door. And assuming leadership is tough to come by, the very, very, very, very, very least you can do is deny WV American Water’s outrageous rate hike. More
