Do You Support The New Schoharie Gas Line Plan? [POLL]
New York State wants to run a gas line through farmland in Schoharie, but the residents of the area are worried it may cause them problems.
It seems like only yesterday that Schoharie County was hit by hurricane Irene. That area of the state is still recovering in so many ways. Now, the State wants to run a $750 million gas line through the town of Wright.
Obviously with the area being so flood prone, many are nervous what could happen if something like Irene were to occur again. Yesterday, residents of Schoharie spoke out against the plan, and proposed a new area for it to be run, instead of through farmland.
There is also the fear that a gas leak could damage water supplies and be potentially fatal. On the plus side, the line would reduce the cost of natural gas, which will be transported from Pennsylvania, to New York.
