A proposal by the Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company to expand it's pipeline through the Merrimack Valley, including a section of Tewksbury, has some residents up in arms.
They will get the opportunity to confront TGPC officials at a public meeting, scheduled by Town Manager Richard Montuori for June 24 at 7 p.m. at the Senior Center.
According to an article in the Boston Business Journal, the TGPC pipeline presently includes some 13,900 miles of pipe. It starts in south Texas and the gulf coast and makes its way north, through 14 states, including New York and Massachusetts.
A section of the pipeline runs along the southern border of Mass. and all the way into Boston.
But Kinder Morgan, the parent company of the TGPC, would like to create another branch of the pipeline, running 250 miles from Wright, NY and into Dracut. A portion of that line would run through an area in North Tewksbury.
Kinder Morgan officials have said the pipeline expansion will serve to drive down energy prices in the northeast.
According to the Boston Business Journal article, a precise route the expansion will follow has not yet been agreed upon. At present, Kinder Morgan officials are asking permission from property owners along the potential route lines to survey their property as part of the decision making process to determine the exact route.
