State needs to be in compliance

I’ve lived in Athens for just over 5 years. Part of the reason we came here was to escape the dangers of Indian Point. If the plan to increase the gas moving through the old pipelines that feed the Iroquois Compressor Station becomes a reality, my move will seem like shifting from the proverbial frying pan into the fire.

I only live about a mile, or so, as the crow flies, or should I say, as the particulates fly, from the Iroquois Compressor Station. I love my beautiful home in Athens, Greene County, and we made a sizeable investment to build and enjoy our retirement years here. And many people live in this vicinity, many even closer to the site. So now I find I am facing possible severe health and safety risks if this project comes to fruition.
