Activists Continue Fight Against Rover Pipeline
From Livingston Daily:
Grassroots and environmental groups want the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to stop Energy Transfer's Rover Pipeline from using a drilling technique that recently caused the spillage of millions of gallons of drilling fluid in Ohio.
The Sierra Club, Michigan Residents Against the ET Rover Pipeline and Ohio-based non-profit FreshWater Accountability Project filed a formal request Wednesday asking the federal agency to revoke a permit that allows ET Rover to drill tunnels horizontally under bodies of water.
"If it must be built, it absolutely has to be built as close to perfectly as possible," Terry Lodge, an attorney for the three groups, said Thursday. "There is no room for error."
In a letter to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Lodge asks the Corps to "require individual permits for each water body crossing" and revoke a permit allowing for horizontal drilling along the entire pipeline.You can read much more by clicking here.
