Eight sisters, including Alice and Eleanor Uhl, Trudy Dunham, Suzanne Janis, Danelle McCarthy, Mary John Kearney, Mary Pat Reid, and Jeanne Goyette, attended the NJDEP public hearing last evening in opposition to the proposed Gateway Expansion Project in Roseland, New Jersey. There were approximately 150-175 people present, the vast majority of whom were also in opposition to the proposed compressor. Essex County Executive Joe DiVincenzo, Roseland Mayor John Duthie, Roseland residents and citizens from other New Jersey communities as well as leaders of climate and environmental groups presented compelling reasons why the proposal for the compressor must be denied. There were about 45 people who publicly testified against the proposed compressor, including Sr. Alice Uhl, who eloquently represented the Caldwell Dominicans.
The NJDEP representatives announced that people can now submit written comments to the NJDEP no later than September 6th. You can send them by email to email@example.com or send them by regular mail to: NJ Department of Environmental Protection, Division of Land Use Regulation, Bureau of Inland Regulation, Att: Chivon Kisic, PO Box 420 (Mail Code 501-02A), Trenton, NJ 08625.
Please voice your opposition to the proposed compressor upgrade to protect people and the environment in northern New Jersey.
