MONKTON, Vt. -A proposed natural gas pipeline through Addison County has hit another snag. The Vermont Gas pipeline will go through several towns in Addison County before crossing Lake Champlain -- but residents in the small town of Monkton have raised the biggest opposition to the proposed plans.
"You really shouldn't have an uninvited gas pipeline come through your town," said Nate Palmer.
Nate Palmer is one of a few dozen residents who oppose any pipeline plans. The proposed 12-inch pipe would run through his farmland. Vermont Gas has offered him $4,000 dollars in compensation -- but he says it's not enough.
"When you come through with that kind of equipment you rip a big trench through it -- it will take me years to get it back into shape," Palmer said.
