CT Expansion People Over Pipelines Walk

There will be a People Over Pipelines Walk to Stop the Connecticut Expansion Pipeline on September 24, starting at noon, from Agawam, MA to East Granby, CT. Kinder Morgan’s Connecticut Expansion pipeline project has received a lot of press concerning it’s 3.8 mile segment through Sandisfield, Massachusetts and the protected conservation land of Otis State Forest. But the entire pipeline project also contains a segment in Bethlehem, New York just south of Albany, and another from the Agawam, MA compressor station down to East Granby, CT.

This walk will help bring attention to the re-drafting of the Connecticut Comprehensive Energy Strategy (CES) coming up this fall.

— WHAT, WHERE and WHEN
Arrive at 11:00-11:30 at Suffield Village Shopping Center at the intersection of Rte. 75 and 168 in Suffield CT, for parking.
» Map to Suffield Village Shopping Center

The People Over Pipelines CT Expansion Walk kicks off at noon on September 24, 2016 with a rally at the 1615 Suffield St. compressor station. Musicians include Sarah Stockwell-Arthen and Ben Grosscup.

The walk will then continue 8 miles into Connecticut along the pipeline route. Shuttles will bring walkers to the Agawam starting point. Support vehicles will be available throughout the walk.

For more information, please contact the Sierra Club Connecticut Chapter at 860-236-4405, or email connecticut.chapter@sierraclub.org.
