Having lost their bid to get the state Board of Public Utilities to reject a major North Jersey power line project, opponents of the Susquehanna-Roseland line are turning their sights this week to the National Park Service.

Environmental groups and other opponents will speak out at three environmental scoping hearings scheduled in Pennsylvania and Morris County, hoping to convince federal officials the proposed towers would cause environmental and aesthetic problems for scenic parklands.
