THANK YOU! OVER 1,500 intervenors!

Thanks for all the interventions.
PennEast has formally filed with FERC
New Docket Number – CP15-558

Please continue to comment on the FERC web site! If you didn’t register to intervene and feel that your rights may be impaired if you do not, you can do so “out of time” on the FERC web site.

                WHY INTERVENE???
1. If FERC issues a decision that impacts you and you don’t like it, YOU CAN
ONLY EFFECTIVELY PROTEST IF YOU ARE AN INTERVENOR.

Non-intervenors are locked out of critical portions of the process.
2. FERC must address Intervenor comments in the Environmental Impact
Statement (EIS) and decisions.
3. An intervenor is allowed to participate in (or bring) legal proceedings involving
FERC and PennEast.
4. Intervenors are accorded elevated attention in FERC’s decision making
process and final decision.
AND VERY IMPORTANTLY
5. We need to show FERC that we are committed to fighting this pipeline!


WE CAN DO THIS!!!

From MIke SPille’s ‘THE COST OF THE PIPELINE’ –

“In a nutshell, declaring that you are an intervenor reserves several rights for yourself, including being notified of all documents delivered in relation to the project, and also the right to be part of any legal proceedings (or bring them yourself). There is no real downside to being an intervenor.

INTERVENE and Help protect your neighbors and our community!  TOGETHER WE CAN WIN!
