Environmental Analyst: NG Advantage Misleading Fenton Residents


A study conducted by four environmental experts reveals NG Advantage is misleading residents by comparing its proposed natural gas site in Fenton to the one in Milton, Vermont.

"It's irrefutable, I don't see how anyone could say that the two sites are similar," said Walter Hang, Toxics Targeting President.

According to Hang there are ten times more sensitive receptors (homes, schools, parks, places of worship, etc.) within a one mile radius of the Fenton location compared to the Milton site. In total there are more than 2,000 homes and businesses at risk in Fenton compared to just 200 in Milton.

"There are too many homes, too many commercial buildings where there could be hundreds of people congregating, so this is really not an appropriate location for this kind of facility," said Hang.

NG Advantage CEO, Rico Biasetti has called the Milton location very similar to the one in Fenton.

Hang and a group of three researchers compiled local, state, and federal environmental data of both the NG Advantage location in Milton and the proposed site in Fenton. They applied the data onto maps to identify how land is zoned - agricultural, industrial or residential.

"The two locations are nothing alike, they're completely different," said Hang.
