Archeological concerns slow natural gas pipeline

The Record of Woodland Park


Already delayed by slow permit approval, the proposed Tennessee Gas pipeline from West Milford to Mahwah is now being held up by federal officials because it would either run through or near historic areas, including Native American burial grounds.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, which approved the project last spring, said in a Nov. 21 letter that the pipeline cannot be built until Tennessee Gas comes up with a plan to minimize the $400 million project's impact on sites such as Skylands Manor Historic District in Ringwood, Cleveland Bridge in Mahwah and St. Luke's Chapel in Ringwood.
