The Dunkirk Project – Pipeline Route

Governor Andrew Cuomo announced on December 15, 2013, that the Dunkirk Natural Gas Project was moving forward. This project involves running a natural gas pipeline to the Dunkirk power plant.

From April through July, NRG will work with state and local agencies on the pipeline route, which will likely traverse the communities of Dunkirk, Cassadaga and Pomfret. During this time, agents working for NRG will contact landowners along the potential routes and request their permission to conduct surveys. Surveyors, who will provide identification, may need to return to some properties for follow-up surveys.

NRG, with input from NY State agencies, will identify a proposed pipeline route. NRG will meet with landowners along the proposed route to discuss obtaining easements for the pipeline. More information will be available at that time.

For general questions about the pipeline, call 844 521-5679. Your call will be returned within two business days.

Thank you for your interest in and support of this project, which will preserve jobs, provide tax benefits, deliver significant environmental benefits, and provide clean and stable power to the Western New York electrical system.
