On 20 May 2021 the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approved Williams Transco’s request for a 2 year extension to build the Williams NESE Pipeline, over the objection of thousands of concerned New Yorkers and over 60 federal, state and city elected officials.

What does this mean?

Williams Transco has two more years to reapply to New York and New Jersey for federal Clean Water Act Section 401 permits.
