State regulators say they'll hold an "issues conference" on a proposed propane storage facility in a depleted Finger Lakes salt cavern to determine if an official hearing before a judge is needed.

The Department of Environmental Conservation says Monday that the conference will be scheduled because of extensive public interest in the proposal by Houston-based Crestwood Midstream's Finger Lakes LPG Storage to store propane beside Seneca Lake.

Finger Lakes winemakers and other business owners traveled to Albany last month asking Gov. Andrew Cuomo to reject the proposal, saying it would bring heavy industry, truck traffic and the risk of catastrophic accidents to a region that thrives on tourism.

Bill Gautreaux, a Crestwood executive, said propane has long been stored and transported safety in the Finger Lakes without incident.
