Williams Transco Slaps Down U.S. Army Corps of Engineers In Rockaway Pipeline Dispute

Williams Company representatives have reported in public meetings in Kentucky that they work with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to ensure pipeline safety.  A probing investigative report from Naturalgaswatch.org suggests otherwise.  "The company seeking to build a natural gas pipeline through national park land near New York City dismissed safety recommendations from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers recently, asserting instead that their own plans to build the pipeline to a lesser standard will provide “full protection of the pipeline while minimizing environmental impacts,” according to documents obtained by NaturalGasWatch.org."
