Rumors of planned private property seizures under Eminent Domain to facilitate the pipeline as well as the location of compressor stations and other support infrastructure have not been confirmed. Residents within proximity of the proposed pipeline route are encouraged to contact their local Town and Planning Boards for additional information as well as the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) at: 202-502-6088.
