ENB - Region 7 Notices 11/13/2013
Madison County - The Board of Trustees of Village of Hamilton, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Natural Gas Distribution Pipeline for the Village of Hamilton and Environs will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the installation of a natural gas distribution pipeline system within the Village of Hamilton, Town of Eaton, Town of Madison, and Town of Hamilton, New York.The Action is underground, with the exception of small outbuilding(s), piping and equipment enclosures at the "City Gate" intersection with the interstate pipeline, and a driveway at that location. Gas meters will generally be located above ground at each customer's location. The Action will consist of a distribution pipeline that will interconnect with the existing Tennessee Gas Pipeline at one of two alternate locations near US Route 20 in the Town of Madison or the Town of Eaton. The main pipeline will vary in diameter from two (2) to ten (10) inches, and is planned to operate at a pipeline pressure of approximately 60 pounds per square inch, with a maximum operating pressure of approximately 100 pounds per square inch. Generally, the project will require the acquisition of rights-of-way (ROW) from private property owners, while other portions of the pipeline will be co-located within existing roads, sidewalks or utility ROW. The ROW necessary to construct and maintain the Action varies from potentially as great as 50 feet wide within agricultural lands to as little as 4 feet where co-located within existing roads and sidewalks. The length of the pipeline from the Tennessee Gas Pipeline tie-in point to the southern extent of the Village of Hamilton is approximately eight (8) miles. Additional smaller diameter pipelines will be installed as laterals off the main pipeline.
