When it comes to Northern Pass, opinions abound in DOE report
The so-called “scoping report,” released on March 12, slices and dices the data accumulated by the DOE in hearings designed to help it determine the scope of the still-to-come environmental impact statement, but doesn’t quote a word anybody said or wrote.
The report said that 6,400 unique individuals, businesses, organizations, municipalities and government agencies filed comments, and that most (68 percent) were from New Hampshire. Another 17 percent came from other New England states.
“The concern expressed over Northern Pass as proposed just cannot be ignored,” said Jack Savage, spokesperson for the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests. “Add to that the preponderance of comments favoring a burial option — which is clearly viable — and it would seem that the only chance Northern Pass might have to be permitted is to go underground.”
“What a useless document,” he posted on the N.H. Public Radio website. “The DOE summary converts unprecedented public outrage and powerful, detailed anti-project policy arguments into nothing more than bland categorization. Even the categorization is half-hearted, sloppy and grossly oversimplified.”
