Langley Township deadline for pipeline comments extended to May 8

The deadline to provide comments to Langley Township about its intervener status on the Kinder Morgan pipeline twinning project has been extended.

Residents will now have until May 8 to send comments to the Township, due to an extension granted by the National Energy Board (NEB).

Langley Township wants input from the community as it prepares its first submission to the NEB about the proposed twinning of the Kinder Morgan oil pipeline, which will run through North Langley.

The Township has been granted intervener status, and is focusing on three specific issues: the potential environmental and socio-economic effects of the proposal; suitability of the design and location of the new pipeline; and potential impacts of the project on landowners and land use.

It will submit information to the NEB on May 12, so is asking for comments in writing by Thursday, May 8.

Comments must be from Langley Township residents, and must be submitted in writing. These comments can be e-mailed to publicinput@tol.ca or by mail to Pipeline Input, c/o Township engineering division, 20338 65 Ave., Langley, BC, V2Y 3J1 or to Pipeline Input, c/o Township engineering division, 4700 224 St., Langley, BC, V2Z 1N4.

There will be a second round of hearings to submit information in September, and Township residents will be asked for input over the summer months.

More information is available on a website the Township has set up to deal with this issue. Its web address is tol.ca/pipelineinput.
