A proposed 250-mile pipeline from Northeast Ohio to Michigan and Ontario is already under fire from environmental groups.
The natural gas pipeline was proposed earlier this week by Enbridge Inc. DTE Energy and Spectra Energy.
The estimated cost: $1.2 billion to $1.5 billion.
The pipeline has been attacked by Cleveland-based EcoWatch and by Food & Water Watch, a national eco-group.
It would cause health and environmental problems in Ohio and allow companies to export natural gas to Canada, the eco-groups said.
The companies involved have defended the project.
