Our fight is not over yet.
The New York Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has reopened the public comment period regarding the “Constitution” pipeline company’s application for the crucial 401 Water Quality Certificate.
What You Can Do:
In order to protect New York water from this massive fracked-gas pipeline, we need to inundate the DEC with comments—particularly, with requests for a longer comment period —before 5pm, Thursday, May 14th.
But wait! You can send more than one comment. On that same STP web page, you’ll find a list of other relevant issues on the right side of the screen.
Click on one of the white “plus” symbols in the black boxes. Then construct a letter from the drop-down list of bullet points, or click on the sample letter and copy and paste that into the comment window.

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) should share all new information with the public regarding the proposed “Constitution” pipeline, and reopen the comment period once the joint application is complete.
- On April 29, 2015, the DEC announced a new fifteen-day public comment period (which will end on May 14, 2015), stating the Constitution Pipeline Company (Company) had withdrawn and resubmitted the same application for the 401 water quality certificate. No new information was provided to the public.
