NOTICE TO RESIDENTS:
Some residents have heard about the proposal/request of Pilgrim Pipeline to utilize the PSE&G right of way for the construction/installation of a pipeline. If approved, the pipeline would apparently run from Albany, NY to Linden. We have been advised that some residents close to the PSE&G easement might have received a letter from either Pilgrim or PSE&G providing details of the proposed plan. If you or any resident that you might be aware of may have received any communication of this nature, please ask them to send a copy to Borough Hall either by e-mail to TAtkins@watchungnj.gov or regular mail. You can also contact Borough Hall at (908)-756-0080. Thank you
