The Bangor Daily News reports on two FERC-sponsored public meetings held Wednesday and Thursday on the proposed Quoddy Bay terminal in Maine. At Wednesday’s meeting in Pleasant Point, Passamaquoddy Tribe members spoke on the spiritual nature of the proposed site and the potential safety and environmental risks, while others noted the economic benefit the LNG facility would provide the tribe. One opponent questioned the adequacy of public notice for the meeting, and suggested a translator should have been provided. The Bangor Daily News also reports that at Thursday’s meeting in Perry, the majority of speakers opposed the project. Some raised procedural issues with regard to the FERC process, while others addressed seismic and navigational safety. The Perry fire chief asked for a risk assessment to aid in creating an emergency response plan. [Access to archived articles requires a fee.]
