From The Blade:
In Bowling Green, city council was asked by Spectra to grant easement access to four of 29 acres of city-owned land several miles northwest of Bowling Green. The land is 2.5 miles east of the city’s water-treatment plant.
The request was made to accommodate plans for a 255-mile pipeline Spectra and other companies want to build between southern Ohio and southwest Ontario to move natural gas fracked from Ohio’s Marcellus and Utica shale. The land, at State Rt. 64 and King Road north of Haskins, Ohio, was acquired by Bowling Green in 2015.
Spectra offered $151,000, and was willing to follow an existing utility easement for power lines.
Now, the company will likely either reroute that segment or seek to acquire the city-owned land it wants through eminent domain.Read more by clicking here.
