DEC Statement on Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Project

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has denied a water quality certification for Williams' proposed Northeast Supply Enhancement Project. Williams has not completed its application in a timely manner, and the environmental review of the project being conducted by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission remains incomplete, as well. Moreover, the application materials that were submitted to DEC showed potentially significant environmental impacts that raised serious concerns.

DEC subjects all applications for environmental permits to an extensive and transparent review process that encourages public input at every step‎. DEC will continue to thoroughly evaluate all applications to ensure they do not adversely impact the environment.
