Note: the route through the NYC reservior water sheds is still an
option.

For those of you that can not wait to oppose something, people have
already sent letters opposing this line and you can read them on
the site.  Remember you will be joining with people that do not what
this in their back yards and may have a different view of drilling
than you, but now went NIMBLY on us or OMDB which I think is a more
accurate observation.
