REPRESENTATIVE NAUGHTON RELEASES STATEMENT ON KINDER MORGAN, NORTH WORCESTER LATERAL PIPELINE PROJECT REVISION

(Clinton) – The following statement is from State Representative Harold P. Naughton, Jr.:

“This evening, after speaking with representatives from Kinder Morgan, Inc. I am pleased to announce that the Northeast Energy Direct- North Worcester Lateral pipeline project has been revised and will no longer impact our areas. The proposed construction of a natural gas pipeline jeopardized the environmental integrity of conservation lands, private lands, homes, and businesses in Berlin, Boylston, and Northborough. I want to thank the residents of these areas for your input throughout this process. Without your help, this victory for our conservation lands and local environment would not have been possible.”
