Nexus Gas Transmission will wait until next year to fully restore all of the land along its pipeline route.
Heavy rain this fall has left the ground in some areas too wet to properly restore this year, a project spokesperson wrote in an email last week.
Nexus had aimed to complete restoration around the end of last month, according to filings with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, which has already approved the pipeline for use.
Nexus will stabilize unrestored areas with FERC-approved, industry-standard practices for the winter and finish restoration in the spring, spokesman Adam Parker wrote in an email.
“Where appropriate, erosion control devices will remain in place, the right-of-way will be seeded with a winter grass and stabilized with straw mulch,” Parker wrote, adding that workers won’t put mulch or seed in areas with standing water.Click here to continue reading.
