Pipeline approved in Monkton

Posted: Updated:

After months of negotiations, Monkton has signed off on a plan to allow a natural gas pipeline through town.

The select board agreed on the plan during a special meeting. The sticking point on the underground route was exactly where the pipeline would go-- folks were worried it would be too close to homes.

The town and Vermont Gas have agreed on a new route.

The pipeline is part of the Addison Natural Gas Project which will run a 41-mile natural gas line from Middlebury to Vergennes.
