This is What Gas Pipeline Construction Looks Like (part 2 of 2)

[Update #3 – 11/8/11: pipeline construction complete, just in time for DRBC approval of more gas supply: Bergen Record Portly pipeline goes on line

Update 2 – 8/30/11 – Surprise, surprise! NJ Herald reports: Efforts to contain mud at pipeline site unsuccessful

Work crews from the Tennessee Gas Pipeline project did their best to secure the work sites near the Minerals Resort in Vernon, but despite their best effort, Hurricane Irene simply dumped too much rain to be contained.

According to a statement from the company, “erosion control devices placed on the ski slope at the Minerals Resort held the soil along the construction site in place. However, due to the extreme amount of rain, water washed over the area, including the parking lot for the resort.”

The resulting erosion of the pipeline project washed mud, rocks and sediment down the mountainside and into the condominium communities and parking lots of the resort.

Zach Past, a resident of the Great Gorge Condominiums, said that walls of mud washed down into the development from the mountain work site on Sunday.

“It got pretty messy here,” Past said. “There were inches of mud just building up in the streets.”
