For over a year now, local residents, business owners, and tourists have worked to express their opposition to the proposed gas storage and transport facility being developed on the western shore of Seneca Lake. It stands to be the largest gas storage and transport facility in the North Eastern United States. Despite their efforts, the industrialization of the region by Kansas-city based Inergy moves boldly forward . The DEC’s acceptance of the Environmental Impact Statement as final is imminent.
People within the region are growing increasingly frustrated after attending decision-making meetings, meeting with representatives, writing letters, holding forums, attending hearings, and making phone calls in an effort to stop this project- seemingly to no avail. The community is standing together on August 17th to make their voices heard, and their opposition to this facility known- this time, in a different way. This will be a family friendly peaceful march through Watkins Glen.
STARTING POINT: At 4:00, meet at Seneca Marine Park parking lot near the “Village Marina Bar and Grill” off North Decatur Street; (Address: 2 Seneca Harbor Watkins Glen, NY 14891)
