Vermont Department of Public Service asks state to expand gas pipeline investigation

from VTDigger

In a motion filed with the Public Utility Commission, James Dumont, an attorney representing residents in Monkton and Hinesburg, asked the Public Utility Commission to determine whether an independent licensed engineer signed off on Vermont Gas' plans to build a 41-mile natural gas pipeline that runs between Middlebury and Colchester. The PUC is in the process of retaining a third-party investigator to look into whether the pipeline's construction met proper requirements. But Dumont asked the state to expand the scope of its investigation after the National Transportation Safety Board released its report on the natural gas pipeline explosions in northeastern Massachusetts in September that destroyed five homes, injured 21 people and killed one. Dumont says that Vermont Gas did not obtain the signature of a professional engineer on its construction plans for the pipeline, and alleges that by failing to do so, the utility broke state law. more
