Concerns aired over gas project

At an open house Tuesday, a representative of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission discusses Enbridge’s plan to locate a natural gas compressor station in Talbott.– Steve Marion | The Standard Banner

Representatives of Enbridge and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) answered questions Tuesday evening about plans for a natural gas compressor station along the pipeline in Talbott.

The electrically-powered station, which would help Enbridge move natural gas in either direction on a major trunk line serving the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic states, has residents of the rural area surrounding it concerned about safety, potential noise, property devaluation, and other issues. They have begun circulating a petition opposing it.
