MIDDLEBURY, Vt. (AP) — The Vermont Public Service Board is set to hear from the public on a proposed natural gas pipeline to serve Addison County, and opponents want the board to hear from them loudly and clearly.

The board has set a public hearing on the pipeline proposal by Vermont Gas Systems for 7 p.m. Tuesday at Middlebury Union Middle School in Middlebury.

Supporters say it will boost western Vermont's economy by providing low-cost energy.

The Vermont Public Interest Research Group and other critics are planning a rally outside the school an hour before the hearing.

They say the gas is coming from wells in Alberta that use hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, which Vermont banned within the state's borders in 2012.
