Sierra Club sues NPS approval over powerline 10 organizations throw case into court

“The worst part about this destruction of our public lands is that it is for a project that serves no purpose,” said Kate Millsap, conservation program coordinator for the Sierra Club of New Jersey. “We were told that without the power line in service by 2012 that there would be rolling brown outs and black outs, but this summer we were able to handle peak loads without these problems. We need the court to overturn the NPS approvals and demand that they look at non-transmission alternatives to the project as part of the environmental review process.”
