Opponents of a Vermont Gas pipeline want the Public Utility Commission to move forward on an independent investigation of the pipeline construction.
The PUC, at the behest of ANR and concerned citizens, ordered an expert review of the methods and practices used to construct the controversial 41-mile pipeline from Colchester to Middlebury.
A letter filed Wednesday with the PUC by Bristol-based attorney James Dumont on behalf of Hinesburg and Monkton residents says the PUC has not confirmed whether the third-party investigation has began. The letter requests a meeting with the PUC, Vermont Gas and the Department of Public Service “to get the investigation underway.”
