Sullivan officials may seek new study on pipeline health issues

MONTICELLO – Concerns continue to be raised in part of Sullivan County about the safety of the Millennium Pipeline,

The pipe runs through the towns of Highland and Lumberland, represented by County Legislator Nadia Rajsz, who says residents in her district are still asking questions.

“A health hazard could be detected, primarily formaldehyde, radon and then there are others.”

Rajsz said a new study may be in order.

“Maybe we need to see if there is money that we could have or maybe Millennium could pay for it,” Rajsz said

County attorney Cheryl McCausland said she can see what the options are.

“I think that the RFP that was – I wasn’t intimately involved in it – but I believe that it was limited to the baseline study.  It did not contemplate a second study.”

McCausland suggested bringing in other key officials, including Public Health Director Nancy McGraw, to help identify current concerns with the pipeline that passes Broome County, through Sullivan and Orange then ending in eastern Rockland County.
