More than 100 people have been arrested since October at the sight of a proposed expansion of liquid propane gas storage (LPG) near Seneca Lake. Many of the recent arrests are prominent business owners. The owners of a new high-wattage wine project -- one from California, one from Germany -- now say that if they had known this LPG project was going forward, they probably would have skipped coming to the Finger Lakes. So why has it gotten so heated? What's the latest development?
We've invited Crestwood Energy to join us. So far, no response, but they've given statements to other media outlets. We've also reached out to state lawmakers.
Our guest for this topic are:
- Will Ouweleen, owner of O-Neh-Da Vineyards
- Joseph Campbell, Gas Free Seneca
- Phil Davis and Lou Damiani, co-owners of Damiani Wine Cellars
