Jersey City: A Gas Pipeline Runs Through It02 Aug 2010, Posted by News in
UPDATE: For all the latest pipeline news, please visit NOGASPIPELINE.ORG
I’m sure many of you reading this are well aware of the proposed construction of a huge 30″ gas pipeline to be run through Jersey City to service New York City by Spectra Energy, a Texas-based company. Over the course of the year, many Jersey City residents have been unsure of the exact route the line will take through our city. As you can see from the photo above, the gas pipeline runs right next to the western border of The Village.
Now look at this photo…
The devastation in this photo was caused when a similar gas line exploded in Virginia in 2008. The cause of the explosion was determined to be corrosion.
