An article about the risks of utility pipelines was recently published, titled “Warning: Unnecessary Pipelines Could Leave Consumers Holding the Bag.” Closer to home, two pipeline proposals were recently sent back to the Pinelands Commission. We feel that these articles are worth reading – the Mantoloking Environmental Commission.
