GRAY

Agenda Item #4890 - Res. 20-078
Adopted
A Resolution Strongly Urging Governor Carney and the Delaware River Basin Commission not to Approve the Proposed Export of Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) from Terminal “Dock 2” Facility in Gibbstown, NJ Due to the Risk of Health, Environmental and Public Safety Catastrophes that Could Occur During Land and Water Transport of LNG in Proximity to Wilmington and Other Densely Populated Areas in Delaware

Synopsis:  This Resolution is being presented by City Council for Council’s review and approval. The Council of the City of Wilmington strongly opposes the conversion of the former DuPont Repauno Works facility at the Delaware River in Gibbstown, New Jersey into a Liquefied Natural Gas transfer facility. LNG is a dangerous substance, which, if handled improperly or with malicious intent, has far-reaching and deadly effects. The State of Delaware, and especially the City of Wilmington, would be at a continuous and great risk should such a terminal be developed, and would receive no benefits. We therefore urge the Governor to vote against the facility proposal.
