ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has extended the public comment period on permits related to the Constitution Pipeline and its Schoharie County compressor station.

The 28-day extension means comments will be accepted through Friday, Feb. 27.

The 124-mile pipeline would cross Broome, Chenango, Delaware and Schoharie counties to bring low-cost natural gas from Pennsylvania to New York City and the Northeast.

The project has been approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. It still needs state permits related to air and water quality and wetlands protection.

Copies of the state permit application documents can be viewed online at: www.constitutionpipeline.com .
