As promised during the Tennessee Gas Pipeline meeting earlier this month, the town of North Reading has added a fact sheet about the project on the town site. 

The town included information about surveys, environmental review, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission proceedings, eminent domain and challenging an FERC certificate or taking.

For more information about the proposal, including a project timeline, read the previous Patch coverage here.

Kinder Morgan proposes to put a 20-inch gas pipeline along the power lines that cross Main Street, Park Street and Haverhill Street. The pipeline would connect larger lines in Dracut and Lynnfield. 

The line would be part of the 13,000-mile Tennessee Gas pipeline and would transport natural gas from other parts of the country to New England. 

The project would need to get the OK from federal and state agencies. It would need North Reading Conservation Commission approval too. The FERC will make the final call on the project.
