Under Pressure, County Freeholders Intervene on Proposed Pipeline

NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ—Big steps were made this April in the growing opposition to the Transco natural gas pipeline proposed to be built in Central Jersey.

The Middlesex County Freeholders have officially filed to become intervenors with the company's application to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), which will make the final decision about whether or not the pipeline is built.

On April 24, Freeholder Director Ronald Rios released a letter stating the Freeholders would be filing as intervenors in the case.
