Hampton Open House Boasts Big Numbers

They came out in droves...Hampton boasting one of the largest turnouts of any Energy East pipeline open house with 260 people signing up.

The Vice President of Eastern Oil Pipeline Projects, John Van Der Put tells CHSJ News those who came were hungry for information, and while the questions were across the board, he didn't hear concerns about the possible environmental impact of the pipeline. Van Der Put says it seems that people are getting the information they need and environmental impact isn't something people are concerned about or dwelling on.

He describes the general tone as one of interest and inquisitiveness.
