Natural Gas Pipeline: Could be One-Half Mile From Your Home!
Do you realize that the proposed Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company/Kinder Morgan pipeline could be going about a half a mile from your home? It’s known as the Tennessee Gas Pipeline Northeast Expansion Project.
It is! This can not happen! It would be a death sentence for our neighborhood, our quality of life as we know it now will be non-existent and for some the safety of our children will be jeopardized.
PHOA members Cindy and Robert McDermott put together information about the gas pipeline that is proposed to go through northern Mass and southern NH. Itʼs a long article but well worth reading, and also worth your time and energy to mobilize and fight this ill-conceived project.
Click here or on the "Gas Pipeline Info" link at the top of this page to read this article and find out why the pipeline cannot happen and what you can do to join the fight against it.
We will post all area equine events - Not just Trail Rides. Email the information two months in advance, if possible, to email@example.com.
