National Grid work

National Grid will be doing preliminary work on the existing right of way that Clear River Energy Center might have to expand to accommodate the power plant project.

According to National Grid, the borings to be taken within the right of way do not constitute support for the project, but the work is needed to determine the sutability to construct in the future in the event the project is approved by the Energy Facility Siting Board.

The work is scheduled to start in early August.
