TONITE: LI’s last chance to say “NO!” to Broadwater

Long Island’s Last Chance to Say “No!” to Broadwater

Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the New York State Department of State joint federal hearings.

In mid November the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission released the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for Broadwater Energy’s LNG proposal for Long Island Sound.  FERC concluded that the construction and operation of the energy facility would cause minimal adverse environmental impacts to the Sound’s fragile ecosystem.  We believe this report has grossly underestimated the impacts. On January 10 and 11 the public will be given a formal opportunity to voice their opposition to Broadwater and their dissatisfaction with FERC’s favorable DEIS. You, your family, your friends and neighbors should attend one of these hearings and tell FERC and the Department of State why we need to protect Long Island Sound from Broadwater.
