A statement from Patty Cronheim, outreach coordinator for ReThink Energy NJ

On June 5, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection denied three key permits for the controversial Northeast Supply Enhancement project, a 24-mile pipeline that would send natural gas from New Jersey under Raritan Bay to New York City. New York Department of Environmental Conservation denied similar permits for the project proposed by energy company Williams in May 2019.

“New Jersey used its authority to protect our water, natural resources, and communities from a dangerous pipeline. Strong laws mean nothing if they aren’t backed up by strong enforcement. In deciding this issue on its merits, New Jersey stepped up for the public interest,” said Patty Cronheim, outreach coordinator, ReThink Energy NJ.
