Tell Governor Cuomo “Kill the Constitution Pipeline!”
New York doesn’t need the so-called “Constitution” Pipeline, a 124-mile
long high-pressure pipeline that would bring fracked gas from Pennsylvania into upstate New York. We don’t need another dangerous and destructive infrastructure project that will increase our dependence on fossil fuels.
If the corporation behind the project gets its way, it will seize private property by eminent domain, clear-cut 700,000 mature trees and trench through hundreds of streams and wetlands. The clear-cutting will increase runoff and exacerbate flooding in a region already hard hit by frequent flooding. Pristine trout streams and important drinking water supplies will be contaminated. Natural habitats will be fragmented and the landscape will be scarred. Upstate New York will never be the same.
The pipeline has already been approved by the federal government, but there’s still a chance to stop it. The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation can refuse to issue a water quality certificate if it determines that the project is liable to harm our water supplies. Without the state’s water quality certificate, the project is dead.
In other words, Governor Cuomo’s DEC can stop the pipeline if it does the job it’s supposed to do—protect our water resources.
