Today, Transco filed the formal application for the NESE Project - of which Compressor 206 is a part - with FERC . At this stage, all the impacted parties like residents, organizations, townships etc will need to file as intervenors to be able to participate in the process.
From this point onwards, unless you file as an intervenor, your concerns may not be heard and you could be shut out of the process.
What does it mean to be an Intervenor ?
An intervenor is a person who reserves the right to object to a pipeline/compressor and to FERC's decisions. An intervenor can also participate in (or bring) legal proceedings involving FERC and Transco. They are also accorded elevated attention in FERC's decision making process and final decision, and intervenor comments must be addressed in FERC's Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and decisions.
If you don't declare yourself as an intervenor, you can't challenge FERC, and they can ignore your comments
