Kinder Morgan to make case for pipeline in Dalton

The Berkshire Eagle reports that Dalton officials intend to organize a panel of residents to argue the other side.

Kinder Morgan, parent company of Tennessee Gas, is expected to file a preliminary application for the 250-mile pipeline. It would begin in Wright, New York, west of Schenectady, and follow a route through eight Berkshire communities. It would end in Dracut, north of Lowell.

The cost of the pipeline is estimated at nearly $4 billion, in addition to $2 billion for a route supplying natural gas.

Opponents say the public will bear the cost of construction with higher electricity rates. Opponents in Dalton won a nonbinding resolution against the pipeline.
