Save Burden Lake!
Welcome to the web site of the The Nassau-Burden Lake Citizens Against NED Pipeline & Compressor Station. We are a community organized group made up of bi partisan residents and homeowners of the Burden Lake communities and the Town of Nassau committed to fighting the installation of a NED pipeline compressor station on Clarks Chapel Road in Nassau, New York.
WE DID IT!!!! Kinder Morgan has discontinued the NED pipeline project! THANK YOU FOR ALL THE SUPPORT! Click here for the latest news coverage.
This site is designed to keep Burden Lake residents and other concerned individuals up to date on the proposed NED compressor station for the Clarks Chapel Road location in Nassau, New York. It is also designed to educate people on the severe effects this proposed compressor station will have on the health of those living within a five to ten mile radius of the station, the environmental impacts, and the economic impact on homeowners.
The Northeast Energy Direct (NED) proposed pipeline is a high pressure, 30-36” diameter natural gas pipeline proposed to run from the fracking fields of Pennsylvania through New York, Massachusetts and New Hampshire through to Dracut, MA where is its proposed to join with existing pipelines that connect to the Massachusetts and Canadian coasts. It is proposed that the NED pipeline will be co-located along existing pipelines and power lines for part of the route and through “greenfields” (previously undistributed areas) in other parts. This pipeline is to be constructed by Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company (a subsidiary of Kinder Morgan).
