State Doesn't Need Impact Study

posted by John Baibak - 

Governor Charlie Baker's  administration is ruling that an Environmental Impact Report is needed  for natural gas expansion projects in Agawam and Longmeadow. 

Energy and environment secretary Matthew Beaton signed a  certificate earlier this month under the Massachusetts Environmental  Protection Act requiring the action from Tennessee Gas Pipeline, a  subsidiary of Kinder Morgan. 

Tennessee is planning facilities on both  sides of the Connecticut River to support expansion efforts by  Massachusetts-based Columbia Gas.
