Key Permits Approved For NY-NJ Gas Pipeline

Flickr user WabbyTwaxx

New Jersey environmental officials have approved key permits for the building of a proposed natural gas pipeline that will go across portions of north Jersey and New York City.
  

A Department of Environmental Protection spokesman said Friday that flood hazard, waterfront development and fresh water wetlands permits have been approved.
  

The proposed 16-mile natural gas pipeline will run from Staten Island through parts of Bayonne, Jersey City and offshore in Hoboken into Manhattan’s West Village neighborhood.
  

The project still requires approval from federal regulators.
  

Opponents cite safety and environmental concerns. But supporters say it will cut down on pollution from dirtier heating sources like fuel oil and save consumers money.
  

The company behind the pipeline, Spectra, says it has revised its original plan and it now exceeds federal safety requirements.
