TEMPLE - People packed into Temple Town Hall Monday with big concerns about the natural gas pipeline proposed by Kinder Morgan.
The pipeline would not run through Temple, but there are concerns about the compressor station that would be built next door in New Ipswich, about a ¼ mile from Temple Elementary School.
Monday’s meeting wasn’t with Kinder Morgan. It was an opportunity for the public to meet with the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES), as members explain their role in the permitting process.
Organizers say the first responsibility of DES is to protect residents. They will approve or reject Kinder Morgan’s proposal once it is submitted.
They may not be able to overrule a decision by the Federal Regulatory Committee (FERC), but say FERC typically takes the state’s report into high consideration.
DES representatives explained their permitting process, and say public input is a big part of it.
