NORWICH – The Chenango County Board of Supervisors is getting behind a proposal that would see construction of a 124-mile long natural gas pipeline stretching from northern Pennsylvania to New York’s Capital Region.
Board members have unanimously approved a resolution supporting the development of the Constitution Pipeline, a natural gas delivery project proposed to run from Susquehanna County, Penn. to the Town of Wright in Schoharie County, NY.
The pipeline would connect to two existing interstate natural gas pipelines in Schoharie: the Iroquois Gas Transmission (which extends to NYC metropolitan area) and the Tennessee Gas Pipeline (which serves markets in New England).
According to the Chenango County Board, the pipeline would also have an indelible economic impact locally as the proposed route passes through the Chenango County towns of Afton and Bainbridge.
