The entire Connecticut congressional delegation has expressed its opposition to Broadwater Energy’s proposed LNG terminal in Long Island Sound. “We have grave concerns about the impact that this permanent structure would have on the long-term health and vitality of the Long Island Sound,” the legislators said in a Jan. 12 letter to FERC Commissioners. “While we understand and appreciate our nation’s and this region’s need for additional energy resources, we do not believe that the Broadwater project is the best way to meet these needs.” The letter is available on Sen. Chris Dodd’s (D-Conn.) website .

On a related note, Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal last week urged the Federal Aviation Administration to implement a no-fly zone over the Broadwater facility. In response, a Broadwater senior vice president said that the FAA does not usually establish such zones around energy facilities. The Stamford Advocate provides further details.
