New challenge to Vt. Gas pipeline project

Posted: Updated:

A new challenge to a natural gas pipeline under construction in western Vermont. The Conservation Law Foundation wants the state to halt construction until regulators approve additional costs.

Vermont Gas is building the pipeline from Colchester to Middlebury, but recently disclosed the cost of the project has risen by 40 percent. CLF says that represents a substantial change in the project. The environmental group says the Vermont Public Service Board should require Vermont Gas to apply for an amended permit and to stop pipeline construction until then.

Vermont Gas officials say stopping work will only increase costs further.
