LI Citizens Doubts Offshore Projects

Tuesday, January 31, 2006
According to Newsday, the trend of companies proposing offshore energy facilities around Long Island is making some citizens anxious. Operation SPLASH, a nonprofit Freeport group that promotes clean waterways, has watched with growing unease as plans were announced for the Broadwater liquefied natural gas terminal in Long Island Sound and, in the Atlantic Ocean, a wind turbine park and another LNG terminal. Many of those who make their living on the water or use it for recreation, as well as environmentalists, have concerns about the implications of each project. And they worry about the environmental impact of placing these kinds of facilities off the shores of a heavily populated region.

Broadwater has proposed a plan to shift the proposed site a mile to avoid the most productive fishing grounds.
