Draft Environmental Assessment, Natural Gas Easement for NJNG SRL

The “Southern Reliability Link” is a proposed 28-mile, 722 psi natural gas pipeline running from Chesterfield in Burlington County to Manchester in Ocean County, through Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in the New Jersey Pinelands, proposed by New Jersey Natural Gas. Approximately 10 miles are within Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst. Because the pipeline runs through Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, the U.S. Air Force must conduct an Environmental Assessment (EA) before giving the pipeline an easement. The draft Environmental Assessment is currently open for public comment through May 8th. YOU MUST PERSONALIZE YOUR EMAIL BELOW. PLEASE ADD YOUR OWN REASONS.

Protect Wharton State Forest

The Pinelands Commission has the authority to designate roads, hiking paths and trails within the Pinelands National Reserve. They need to take action now to protect Wharton State Forest - the largest tract of state owned land within the Pinelands boundaries. The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection has refused to designate what is and is NOT a road in Wharton State Forest. The destruction of habitats, infrastructure, and historical sites has greatly increased in recent years as people in 4x4 vehicles, ATVs, and dirt bikes have deliberately torn up fragile wetlands, uplands, and dunes as well as making access for other users almost impossible.

The Pinelands are in Danger

The year 2015 was marked by repeated efforts to subvert the environmental regulations that have protected the Pinelands for more than 35 years. Damaging actions included the proposed construction of natural gas pipelines that violate Pinelands rules, interference with the independence of the Pinelands Commission, the rollback of environmental regulations protecting water quality, and the failure of the state to implement a plan to protect our state’s natural resources from off-road vehicle damage or to release the long over-due statewide water supply plan. When the state repeatedly waives or ignores Pinelands rules “just this one time,” it is sacrificing the very foundation on which protection of the Pinelands is based.

The Pinelands and Highlands programs are always under assault from those who want to see these lands developed and their water resources exploited. They need the active support of our governor and state legislators.
