LONGMEADOW Mass. (WWLP) – Some Longmeadow residents were surprised this week to walk out of their homes and find Kinder Morgan poles sticking out of their lawns. The poles had the warning “high pressure gas pipeline” on them.
Longmeadow Town Manager Stephen Crane told 22News the town and residents were not given prior notice.
Pipeline runs beneath Wolf Swamp Road, and Kinder Morgan has the legal right to install these poles to maintain the pipeline.
22News spoke with a resident who had another marker added to his lawn yesterday. Raymond Suzor told 22News, “It is kind of an eye sore so property values, if someone were going to buy the house, I’m sure would be affected by the yellow and white pipes sticking out of the ground.”
Some residents worry these new markers are a blueprint for future construction.
