Gas pipeline re-files water permit application to NY regulators

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Constitution Pipeline Company has re-submitted its application for a critical water quality permit to the state Department of Environmental Conservation.

The permit is one of the last remaining hurdles for the 124-mile pipeline that will carry natural gas from Pennsylvania to New York City and New England. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has approved it.

Pipeline spokesman Christopher Stockton says Wednesday the re-submission was requested by DEC to allow the agency more time to complete its review of the project's potential impacts on wetlands and water quality. The agency had faced a May 8 deadline.

Stockton said there were no changes from the previous version, and he doesn't expect it to delay DEC's final determination.

Stockton says the company hopes to start construction in the next few months.
