The pipeline has seen a significant amount of pushback from the community. The compressor station, which will be located two miles from Franklin Central School, is being fought by a group called Compressor Free Franklin. The pushback has delayed the construction of the Constitution Pipeline by over a year. With 4,000 letters going out to the DEC to reject the pipeline, it is uncertain what the future holds for this small town.
Cindy Beach is a homeowner just outside of the town of Franklin. She is a member of both the Compressor Free Franklin group and Stop the Pipeline. Cindy fought to prevent the pipeline from going through her property but will still be affected, if it’s approved. Even though she was able to keep the pipeline off of her property she had no say in the compressor station which will be located about a mile from her house.
