A Volley in the LPG Battle of Seneca Lake

Last week, the fight against plans to create a massive underground liquid petroleum gas storage facility in the Town of Reading, Schuyler County, took a great leap forward.

On Thursday, Deborah Greenberg, managing attorney of Earthjustice’s New York office, and office campaign manager Kathleen Sutcliffe met with representatives of Gas Free Seneca to tour the site of the project and discuss strategies for continuing the struggle against it. That initial meeting was followed later that evening with a reception for the environmental attorneys held at Damiani Wine Cellars in Hector.

The meet-and-greet, said Gas Free Seneca co-founder Yvonne Taylor, was an opportunity to meet the attorneys who will defend Seneca Lake and its surrounding businesses, and the rights of its residents to preserve their property values and community.
