Natural Gas Pipeline to Run Through Hollis

 by Mary Fokas

Tennessee Gas, a subsidiary of Kinder-Morgan plans to build a natural gas pipeline that will run through Hollis, NH. This pipeline is an offshoot of the Northeast Pipeline Expansion project that is intended to bring natural gas from the Marcellus Shale fields in New York State to New England. The main pipeline will run from NY to Dracut, MA with several offshoots meant to serve customers along the way. One such proposed offshoot would traverse Hollis, through lands belonging to the town of Hollis, the conservation lands of Beaver Brook Association, as well as lands belonging to residential homeowners. This pipeline would not provide natural gas service to Hollis customers. The pipeline is meant as a lateral connector that ends somewhere in Merrimack, near South Merrimack Road and PC Connection on Route 101-A.
