About Compressor Station 206
Williams - Transco Company is seeking to build a very large (32,000 Horsepower) Gas Compressor Station right in the middle of a South Brunswick and Franklin Park residential area. The area is surrounded by schools, places of worship and 800+ residential houses.
The closest community (Princeton Walk) is just 400 feet from the proposed site. The plan will also affect surrounding towns of Kingston, Monmouth Junction, Kingston, Kendall Park and Princeton.
This proposed compressor station will create air, noise, and odor problems that will affect residents in these townships. Compressors pose a serious health risk, especially when in such close proximity to a dense residential area. There's also a history of catastrophic accidents at similar Compressors that could devastate our houses and put residents at serious risk.
