NYSEG Schedules June 15 Public Meeting on Seneca West Pipeline Interconnect Project
– NYSEG will host a public meeting on its Seneca West Pipeline Interconnect project on Wednesday, June 15
from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Town of Big Flats Community Center on Maple Street. The meeting will be open-house style, so those
interested can stop in any time to speak with project gas engineering, operations, environmental, vegetation management and
real estate representatives.
Property owners directly affected by this project as well as property owners who live near the proposed pipeline route have been
notified of the meeting.
The Seneca West Pipeline Interconnect project calls for construction of a new 5-mile natural gas transmission pipeline and related facilities in the Town of Big Flats and the Town and Village of Horseheads. The new pipeline will increase the reliability of natural gas supply to the Elmira area and help enable us to continue to provide natural gas at competitive prices.
Approximately 3.9 miles of the new pipeline will parallel Millennium Pipeline Company’s existing pipeline. The remaining approximately 1.1 miles of the new pipeline will be constructed on an existing NYSEG electric transmission line right of way.
Since mid-April when the project was announced, NYSEG and its contractor, CHA, have been surveying and staking the proposed pipeline route as well as working with property owners where additional easements are needed.
