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.
Selected government documents, scientific articles, web pages, and more that provide detailed information on compressor stations, the Borger Station, the New Market Project, health impacts of natural gas infrastructure, and the specific health impacts of a compressor station built in 2013 in Minisink, NY, which has created numerous health problems for nearby residents.
