NH congressional delegation wants to know Northern Pass’ alternative routes
The application to the Department of Energy submitted by Northern Pass on July 1 contains a description of an alternative route that would require an easement through the Connecticut Lakes Headwaters Conservation Area.
Opponents of the current plans for the project oppose any crossing through the Connecticut Lakes Headwaters Conservation Area and have suggested that more of the line be buried.
“The permitting of projects like Northern Pass is a comprehensive and detailed process,” said Lauren Collins, a spokesperson for Northern Pass. “The DOE’s draft Environmental Impact Statement is expected later this year. Meantime, the public permitting process continues. Northern Pass has already secured a key approval from the region’s grid operator, ISO-NE, and we look forward to working with New Hampshire communities and other stakeholders as we move ahead in 2014.”
