Bald Eagles Unruffled by PSE&G Project

A major project by Public Service Electric & Gas in New Jersey has had minimal impact on the local bald eagle population.

That’s the conclusion of volunteer observers and government officials who’ve been monitoring PSE&G’s construction of 47 miles of the 150-mile Susquehanna-Roseland transmission line through New Jersey.

They tell the Daily Record of Parsippany that bald eagle nests in Rockaway Township, Picatinny Arsenal and Parsippany areas have produced chicks over the past year.

The big question will be whether the eagles come back to the nests during the current nesting season that began January 1.

The symbol of America was removed from the federal endangered species list in the 1990s but remains on a list of threatened wildlife.
