Feds Clear Way for Williams Pipeline over NY Objections

Federal regulators have cleared the way for a Williams Partners natural gas pipeline to move forward despite New York’s denial of a water quality permit that had blocked the project. FERC ruled the state Department of Environmental Conservation missed a one-year deadline when it rejected the permit in 2016.

Williams spokesman Christopher Stockton said the project sponsors are evaluating their next steps.
