Freeholder Brendan Gill Joins Opposition to Gas Compressor

"Last year a Roseland elementary school was evacuated due to fear of a natural gas leak from the compressor station. Jane Califf, a member of Roseland Against the Compressor Station and the Green Party of Essex and Passaic Counties, commented: “We are extremely gratified that the Essex County Board of Chosen Freeholders passed this important resolution unanimously. It will help to address serious health and safety issues of people living next to the Williams/Transco compressor station in Roseland and those living along the pipeline route. We hope that towns in Essex County and beyond will join with Bloomfield, Nutley, and now the Essex County Freeholders to pass similar resolutions.”

According to Jane Califf, the various communities that stand to be affected by the expansion have not been shown the results of the Williams/Transco pipeline test, to which Freeholder Gill commented, “Anything I can do to advocate for residents in my district, I will. Passing this resolution is one of them, and I’m proud to do it."
