'Wine, not brine' is topic for businesses

READING—Nearly 300 businesses that rely heavily on the tourist industry — wineries, bed and breakfasts, restaurants and others — have been invited to two meetings next week to discuss the Inergy Corporation’s proposal to store 88 million gallons of liquid propane in salt caverns three miles north of Watkins Glen.
That proposal also includes building a railroad siding for loading and unloading propane tank cars and constructing a 14-acre, 91-million gallon open brine pond on the hill overlooking Seneca Lake.
The meeting invitation says the slogan for the meetings is “Wine, not brine.”
“We have all worked hard to build our wine and tourist industry in this beautiful area, a letter from Damiani Wine Cellars to the businesses says. “What is being proposed will quickly and irrevocably change this area in to a much more industrial site.”
The meetings will be held Tuesday, May 17 at Damiani’s on Route 414 on the east side of Seneca Lake and Wednesday, May 18 at Glenora Wine Cellars on the west side.
Both begin at 7 p.m.
