Hollis citizens speaking out against controversial gas pipeline
"I hope we can make this impossible, or at least so unprofitable that they take their pipeline elsewhere," she said.
"It makes sense for us to look at this right now," he said, noting that about 52 percent of New England was relying on natural gas last year.
Kinder Morgan is the largest transporter of natural gas in the United States, boasting some 70,000 miles of gas lines. The company is represented in 45 states across the country. Kinder Morgan already operates about 50 miles of pipeline in New Hampshire; the company paid $1.2 million to state and local taxing bodies last year.
Some of the residents said Kinder Morgan surveyors had already approached them. Surveyors also contacted the Beaver Brook Association, town officials confirmed.
"Clearly, we're going to fight this," Jones said. "So at what point should we start getting our lawyers involved?"
"They're doing this for their own financial interest," she said, generating loud applause. "Don't think they're just here to provide cheap gas for everybody."
He noted Kinder Morgan's prior history of laying pipelines through conservation sites in other states, where parts of the properties were acquired via eminent domain — something he fears could happen in Hollis.
