New York regulators have scheduled three public hearings on state permits for the planned Constitution Pipeline.

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York regulators have scheduled three public hearings on state permits for the planned Constitution Pipeline, a 124-mile-long natural gas transmission line from Pennsylvania to Schoharie County.

The pipeline is intended to help meet growing natural gas demand in New York and New England.

The Department of Environmental Conservation will also take written comments through Jan. 30 on state permit applications related to the pipeline.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issued a final environmental impact statement on the project in October and approved construction on Dec. 2. The DEC has authority over specific permits related to air and water quality and wetlands protection.

Hearings are scheduled Jan. 12 in Binghamton, Jan. 13 in Oneonta and Jan. 14 in Cobleskill.

Application documents are on the Constitution Pipeline website (http://constitutionpipeline.com/).
