Coming in March, you will have an opportunity to share your thoughts on Northern Pass with federal officials. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced the dates and locations of four public hearings on the Northern Pass draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), a document released in July 2015 which outlines potential environmental effects the project might have in the region of its proposed route and along alternative routes the DOE has reviewed.

Two of these events – Colebrook and Concord – will be joint meetings co-hosted by the New Hampshire Site Evaluation Committee (SEC) and will serve as the required 90-day post-application Public Information Sessions for Coös and Merrimack counties.

The four DOE hearings will be held in the following locations:

Colebrook (joint hearing with SEC)

Monday, March 7, 5 p.m.

Colebrook Elementary School

27 Dumont Street

 

Waterville Valley

Wednesday, March 9, 5 p.m.

Waterville Valley Conference and Event Center, Waterville Room

56 Packards Road

 

Concord (joint hearing with SEC)

Thursday, March 10, 5 p.m.

Grappone Conference Center, Granite Ballroom

70 Constitution Avenue

 

Whitefield

Friday, March 11, 5 p.m.

Mountain View Grand Resort and Spa, Presidential Room

101 Mountain View Road

 

The DOE hearings are another step in the Northern Pass’ federal permitting process and just one of a number of ways residents can comment on the project. Residents can also send comments to the DOE by mail, email, phone or fax to:
