Update on the Proposed Pilgrim Pipeline (pdf)
The Pilgrim Pipeline Advisory Committee understands that the Pilgrim Pipeline Holdings has engaged a lobbying/public relations firm to assist it with the promotion of the Pilgrim Pipeline Project. Further the Committee understands that Pilgrim is about ready to begin their permitting process before a myriad of governmental bodies. Resolutions have been passed by affected municipal governments but Resolutions alone will not stop this pipeline. We must remain vigilant and active in our opposition.
