    Hello I’m writting from Sidney New York and our Town Supervisor received a Pipeline proposal From Tennesee Pipline at the recent Supervisors Meeting in Delhi, Delaware County. They are proposing a Gas transmission line to run north from Deposit, through Masonville and Sidney and then East towards Davenport on towards Albany. This will be bigger than the Millenium Line and have a huge detrimental effect on the farms and landowners effected as well as indicate our Governor is full steam ahead with Fracking even though every day I read about the danger to our water from this practice. Can’t we demand a place at the table where these decisions are being made? It’s supposed to go through Forrests Farmland and Private property in Broome, Delaware and Schoharie Counties. Ask your town boards what’s going on, I am.
