On April 20, Kinder Morgan suspended plans for the Northeast Energy Direct (NED) pipeline.
Mothers Out Front joined thousands of people across the state to stop this huge, toxic, high-pressure pipeline project.
This is a huge win for all children, for protecting their health now and making a safe, healthy future possible.
There are FOUR more fracked gas pipeline projects proposed for our state. The largest of these is the Access Northeast project, south and west of Boston.
These projects are all part of much larger interstate projects to transport huge amounts of gas from where it is fracked in Pennsylvania through our state.
The larger pipeline projects are toxic industrial systems that include:
- compressor stations, which adjust the pressure of the gas for transport
- metering and regulating stations; valve stations
- pipe cleaning or ‘pigging’ facilities
- new and expanded gas power plants
- storage facilities
