Analysis of the Southern Reliability Link as a Response to Single Point of Failure Concern
A proposed gas pipeline through the Pinelands is an over-priced, oversized, ineffective answer to a problem that does not exist, a new report finds.
- The SRL pipeline would cost more than $180 million and run through a 30-mile stretch of the Pinelands National Reserve.
- An alternate route is estimated to cost between $26 million and $28 million and avoid the Pinelands.
- The alternate route would save NJNG customers more than $150 million in construction costs compared to the SRL pipeline.
