Three Massachusetts and New Hampshire regional municipal coaltions who represent 38 communities, including Townsend, joined together to request one consolidated review of all additional gas pipeline capacity proposals in New England.  Their comments can be found here: Minicipal Coalitions Against the Pipeline Nov. 20, 2015.pdf he Townsend Conservation Commission letter to Secretary Bose in response to the FERC Public Scoping comment period may be found here:TCC FERC scoping comment 10162015.pdf

On December 8, 2014 Kinder Morgan altered the Tennessee Gas Pipeline Northeast Energy Direct (NED) Project filing with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to change the preferred route of the natural gas pipeline.  The alternative path would follow existing rights-of-way along the utility lines in southern New Hampshire.  There is still a lateral pipeline that would run north south through the western part of Townsend. Iill still impact 65 landholders and Townsend's natural resources.  More information on the Tennessee Gas pipeline project is available here
