Public Comment Sought on Health Concerns of Proposed Gas Compressor Station
Georgetown. In June, a workgroup was established to identify resident’s health concerns if a proposed gas
compressor station is built in Sheds in the Town of Georgetown. The proposed gas compressor station would be added along an already existing gas pipeline. A compressor
station would help transport natural gas from one location to another by compressing the gas, thereby increasing its pressure
and providing the energy to move the gas through the pipeline.
The workgroup was started by a concerned group of community members and elected
officials from the Town of Georgetown, Town of DeRuyter, and also includes the County Health Department in Madison County.
The workgroup seeks to collect information and feedback from the community to ensure that any local concerns are considered
during the evaluation of the proposed project by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). Madison County Health Department has hired a consultant to ensure
community feedback, comments, and health concerns are formally presented to FERC during their evaluation process of the proposed
compressor station project. The FERC review process is expected to take several months to complete with a response expected
by the spring of 2015. The consultant will also design a baseline health study that may be implemented should the proposed
project be approved.
Residents from the Towns of Georgetown and DeRuyter
are encouraged to provide their health concerns and feedback to the workgroup.
