Beacon: Stop Crude Oil Transport Through the Hudson Valley

April 4, 2017: 7:00PM to 9:00PM
Howland Cultural Center, 477 Main St. Beacon

Pilgrim Pipeline Holdings, LLC has proposed to construct two parallel pipelines each up to 20 inches in diameter that would run from Albany, NY to Linden, NJ along the NYS Thruway and through private property. One pipeline would transport crude oil south while the other pipeline would carry refined products north. In total, the pipelines would cover some 170 miles (including five laterals totaling nearly 13 miles), impacting 31 municipalities in Albany, Rensselaer, Greene, Ulster, Orange, and Rockland counties.

Join us for a forum on the risks of crude oil transport in the Hudson Valley and what you can do to help mitigate those risks.

Panel discussants include Steve Gold (for Assemblyman Frank Skartados AD104), Jeremy Cherson (Riverkeeper), Audrey Friedrichsen(Scenic Hudson), and Jennifer Metzger (Citizens for Local Power) Presented by Beacon Democratic Committee. Supported by RiverKeeper, Scenic Hudson, Citizens for Local Power, Mountain Tops Outfitters, Democracy Matters, Dutchess County Democratic Committee
