MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. – The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has thrown out a New York state Department of Environmental Conservation decision to deny a water quality permit on Friday. The ruling will allow construction to commence on a gas pipeline that will connect to the CPV Valley Energy Center in Middletown, according to the Times Herald-Record.
The FERC said the New York State DEC waived its right to deny the permit because it failed to act within a year of Millenium Pipeline Company's application, the Record reported.
Construction could begin as early as November, the Record said.
