Power Line Threatens The Delaware Water Gap

Have you ever spent time hiking on the Appalachian Trail from AMC's Mohican Outdoor Center to Sunfish Pond and stopped to take in the amazing view from Raccoon Ridge? That view is in jeopardy because of a proposed high-voltage power line (known as the Susquehanna-Roseland Transmission Line).

The National Park Service took a big step in protecting this view and all the special qualities of the Delaware Water Gap by clearly stating in its draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) that the project would have detrimental impacts if it is built as planned.

Please join AMC in opposition to the line by submitting comments or attending a public hearing. Help us protect the Delaware Water Gap and the Mohican Outdoor Center. Learn more about the project >>

Will you join us in protecting the Delaware Water Gap? Support the National Park Service’s (NPS) conclusion that the Susquehanna-Roseland power line will have detrimental impacts and should not be built through the park! Comments are due to the NPS by January 31, 2012.

Speak out at a public hearing on January 24th, 25th, or 26th. Find the times and locations on the National Park Service’s website.

Submit comments online by January 31st, 2012.
