It was a little less than six years ago when Ian Urbina, as part of his “Drilling Down” series in the New York Times, wrote a piece entitled “Rush to Drill for Natural Gas Creates Conflicts With Mortgages.” Urbina who [ ... ]Read More..
Last week MDN brought you the news that a federal judge had dismissed a case brought by the Constitution Pipeline against the New York Dept. of Environmental Conservation (DEC) over the issue of denying water crossing permits for the project (see Federal Judge Rejects Constitution Pipe Request to Bypass NY DEC).
