Current Federal Consistency Notices

Agency/Applicant: Unitil Corporation

Unitil Corporation is proposing to install an above-ground natural gas launch and retrieval facility adjacent to Route 33 in Greenland. The facility will allow for installation and retrieval of cleaning and inspection devices that are inserted into the gas mains to enable mandatory internal inspection of the pipeline to be performed.

As the project involves an interstate natural gas main, it is subject to Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) regulations under Section 7 of the Natural Gas Act. Specifically, the project qualifies under FERC’s automatic blanket certification process, which requires compliance with applicable laws and regulations, including the Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972, as amended.

Comments Deadline: May 12, 2017
