Eco-group is opposing proposed Ohio gas pipeline

From Food & Water Watch late last week:


Massive Pipeline Proposed Risks Ohio’s Future


Statement of Food & Water Watch organizer Alison Auciello


Cleveland, Ohio “The 250-mile Nexus Gas Transmission pipeline that Canada-based Enbridge has proposed to build in northern Ohio would put natural gas extracted from Ohio on a fast track for export to Canada, while Ohioans would be left to pay the environmental and public health costs of drilling and fracking in their communities. The path of the pipeline would cut a wide swath through northern Ohio, likely leading to property rights disputes if Enbridge makes claims of “eminent domain” to force property owners to accept the pipeline on their property. And Enbridge’s safety and maintenance practices do not bode well for these unlucky property owners. In its investigation of a massive tar sands oil spill that contaminated miles of the Kalamazoo River in Michigan, the National Transportation Safety Board cited Enbridge for ‘pervasive organizational failures.’ This pipeline symbolizes industry’s intent to drill and frack every square mile of Ohio until the oil and gas is gone, and then the industry will be gone and Ohioans will be left to pay the price.”
