Pipeline begins in Canada

Iroquois owns a 416-mile natural gas pipeline that goes from the U.S.-Canadian border in upstate New York, through Connecticut, to Long Island and the Bronx. The pipeline opened in 1991.

Locally, Iroquois has facilities in Shelton, Monroe and Milford.

In Connecticut, the pipeline travels through three counties — Litchfield (New Milford), Fairfield (Sherman, Brookfield, Newtown, Monroe, Shelton), and New Haven (Milford).
