Western NY, Finger Lakes, & the Southern Tier

Finger Lakes


We are a small, recently-formed group of concerned residents, currently focused on raising awareness of the likely negative effects of the ramp-up of the Borger Compressor Station in Ellis Hollow. We hope to take on other community-benefitting projects in the future, such as supporting existing local efforts to make energy conservation and renewable energy more available to everyone. We are a chapter of the national group, Mothers Out Front.

Dominion, as part of its New Market Project, plans to increase the gas flowing through its New York State pipeline and thus through the Borger Compressor Station by 112,000 dekatherms (100 million cubic feet) of gas per day. For an overview of this issue, please see our brochure.
