Pipeline filing sets stage for FERC

(Continued)

The pipeline planners say the line would bring 650,000 dekatherms of natural gas each day — enough to power three million homes — from northeastern Pennsylvania to the Iroquois Gas Transmission and Tennessee Gas Pipeline systems in the Schoharie County town of Summit.

Although it remains uncertain whether the federal government will approve the project, the pipeline planners this week announced a second round of community grants to nonprofit and community organizations in the regions along the project’s route. The new grants, totaling $400,000, included awards of $25,000 each to the Sidney Youth Advocate Program, the Charolotteville Fire Department, the town of Bainbridge pool repair project, Schoharie Area Long Term Inc., a flood recovery organization, and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Delaware County

The Franklin Fire Department landed a grant of $24,980, while the Afton Historical Society secured a grant of $21,000 to help it with its building project.
