» FERC Letter to Spectra Ann Miles, FERC Office of Energy Projects
RE: Hudson River Serious Violations, September 9, 2016
The letter states:
“Within seven days of the date of this letter, please file:
a) an explanation of why Algonquin proceeded with disturbing a wetland without advance notification or approval of any agency;
b) any measures Algonquin will put in place to ensure that further non-compliance will not occur;
c) the calculations Algonquin made to assume the drill stem was within the wetland;
d) copies of all relevant permits and authorizations for impacting this wetland; and
e) a detailed plan for restoring the wetland.
To date, we have not found it necessary to issue a “stop work” order for the construction; however, we cannot continue to see this type of noncompliance. Based on your response to this letter, we may refer this matter to the Commission’s Office of Enforcement for further investigation.”
