    final permit

    SOUTH BURLINGTON — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has granted Vermont Gas Systems the final permit necessary to begin construction of Phase 1 of the Addison Rutland Natural Gas Project.

    “This final permit from the Army Corps of Engineers makes it possible for Vermont Gas to begin the work to bring the economic and environmental benefits of natural gas to more Vermont homeowners and businesses,” Eileen Simollardes, vice president at Vermont Gas and director of the Addison Rutland Natural Gas Project, said in a press release.

    Vermont Gas plans to move forward with delivery of materials to its staging areas and the South Burlington-based natural gas utility plans to hold a groundbreaking ceremony in the near future.

    The Vermont Agency of Natural Resources had previously issued the required state environmental permits. By complying with the terms of the various environmental permits Vermont Gas will ensure that the project is constructed in a manner that will best protect natural resources, including wetlands.

    Vermont Gas has contracted with Vermont-based ECI to perform 17 horizontal directional drills to avoid areas of environmental and archeological sensitivity.
