Agreement to lessen impact of natural gas project on environment

Posted: Updated:
SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. -

The Vermont Agency of Natural Resources has reached an agreement with Vermont Gas to minimize the impact of the company's Addison natural gas project on wetlands and other sensitive areas.

Vermont Gas has proposed an underground transmission line. Vermont Gas will use a technique known as horizontal-directional drilling for portions of the proposed 41.2 miles of phase one of the project. The drilling technique safely houses the pipeline up to 30 feet underneath the sensitive areas.
