Proposed PennEast Pipeline

Posted by Alexandria Township on August 14, 2014

In response to inquiries regarding the 100 mile pipeline proposed that will cross the Delaware River.

PennEast Pipeline Company, LLC, Announces Project To Supply Lower Cost Marcellus Natural Gas To Mid-Atlantic Region.

The proposed PennEast Pipeline will bring low-cost Marcellus gas to natural gas customers in southeast Pennsylvania and New Jersey. At a cost of approximately $1 billion, this new 100-mile pipeline is designed with a 30-inch diameter to deliver up to 1 billion cubic feet of gas per day.
The pipeline will originate in Luzerne County in northeast Pennsylvania and terminate at Transco’s Trenton-Woodbury interconnection near Trenton, New Jersey.
PennEast will begin preliminary engineering studies in the coming months, along with a formal application before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). If all local, state and federal approvals are timely approved, construction of the pipeline could begin in 2017.
For more information, please go to http://www.penneastpipeline.com. Residents with questions about the PennEast Pipeline project can email them to answers@penneastpipeline.com.
Additional information can be found at the FERC website (www.ferc.gov). FERC evaluates interstate natural gas pipeline applications for approval. Also, the U.S. Department of Transportation Office of Pipeline Safety (www.phmsa.dot.gov/pipeline), which enforces regulations of the nation’s pipeline transportation system, is another valuable source of information.

Township of Alexandria receives a Safety and Loss Control Award for our Commitment to Safety

Posted by Alexandria Township on March 4, 2014

February 11, 2014
For Immediate Release
Township of Alexandria receives a Safety and Loss Control Award for their Commitment to Safety

Basking Ridge, NJ – Statewide Insurance Fund Chairman, Thomas S. Russo, Jr. presented the Township of Alexandria with a plaque recognizing their commitment to safety throughout 2013. The presentation was held at the Statewide Insurance Fund’s annual re-organization meeting at the Olde Mill Inn in Basking Ridge.
Fund Chairman Russo noted “The core mission of Statewide is to provide affordable, comprehensive insurance coverage to NJ public entities. This mission is achievable by each member’s participation in Statewide’s safety and risk management programs, which are tailored specifically for the public sector. Insurance claim costs are the single largest expense of providing insurance coverage. A reduction in claims through a commitment to safety results in savings for all Statewide Fund members. This savings provides public entities budget relief which is more important today then ever before. Thank you for your commitment.”
The Fund was formed in 1994 to address the insurance crisis that was facing public entities. Their insurance coverages were becoming restrictive and their insurance premiums were escalating out of control. Today, the Fund has members throughout the State and provides property, liability and workers’ compensation coverage to its members.
