PSC sets hearing for Cambria Asphalt gas line

Niagara Gazette — The New York State Public Service Commission has scheduled public hearings for today on a request by Cambria Asphalt Products to construct a natural gas supply line to its Junction Road plant in the Town of Lockport.

The hearings are set for 3:30 and 6:30 p.m. in West Street Elementary School, 5700 West St., Sanborn.

The company, a subsidiary of Medina-based Shelby Stone, produces asphalt and wants to switch from waste oil to natural gas as its power source.

The underground line would be 2,000-feet and 4 to 6 inches in diameter. The line would tap into a coated steel gas pipeline owned by Lockport Energy Associates to bring gas to its cogeneration power plant east of the asphalt plant.

The line is to be built by Niagara Gas Transport of Lockport. Niagara Gas Transport said the proposed line is economically feasible, and “its construction will result in substantially lower carbon emissions as the asphalt plant switches from waste oil to natural gas as its power source,” according to a release from the commission.

For those wishing to comment, outside of attending the meeting, can do so by sending comments by email to secretary@dps.ny.gov or by mailing or delivering comments to Jeffrey C. Cohen, acting secretary, Public Service Commission, Three Empire State Plaza, Albany, N.Y. 12223-1350. 

Comments may also be submitted through the Commission’s Opinion Line at 1-800-335-2120. Comments should refer to “Case 13-G-0243 – Niagara Gas Transport, LLC.”

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
