Aug 30

Filed Date: 8/30/2013
Accession No: 20130830-3001
Description: Letter informing NOAA Fisheries, Protected Resources Division that FERC is supplementing their June 14, 2012 request to initiate Section 7 Consultation re the Downeast LNG Projectunder CP07-52 et al.
Information: FILE LIST

Summary: FERC communicates to NOAA that Downeast LNG believes it could use vibratory hammering for pile driving, eliminating the need for impact pile driving. That apparently would reduce noise impacts on marine species. FERC also again asks NOAA to agree with FERC's claim that there would be acceptable environmental impacts from the project.


Filed By: Save Passamaquoddy Bay
Filed Date: 8/30/2013
Accession No: 20130830-5194
Description: Save Passamaquoddy Bay comments on FERC's 2013 August 30 request to NOAA, under CP07-52., et al.
Information: FILE LIST

Summary: Save Passamaquoddy Bay observes two deficiencies in FERC's 2013 Aug 30 request to NOAA, Accession No. 20130830-3001:
1) Lack of vibratory hammering noise data, and
2) FERC continues to ignore heavy-metal toxic contamination of the waterway bottom that construction would reintroduce into the water column, contaminating commercial species, sustenance species, food species for marine mammals, marine mammals, including protected species, sustenance Passamaquoddy fishers, and the area's general fish-consuming population.
