We returned from the Lowndes county commissioners meeting October 22nd. I requested that they formally announce that they are against the proposed pipeline. Provided them a Georgia statue that they could use to file their concerns and protest against the route of the proposed pipeline. I was advised that this would be investigated. I am very hopeful that our county commissioners will act. There were a few very concerned citizens who attended the meeting tonight. I am encouraging everyone to become involved. Every voice counts.
Please visit the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and file a comment to register your objection to the pipeline. I suggest you also object to the heavy handed way Sabal Trail is threatening property owners with Eminent Domain.
Do not sign anything given to you by the pipeline companies. Do not be BULLIED.
I would love to have an event where everyone who objects to this pipeline can get together. If you have an idea on how we can do this, please let me know.
We need volume. If you are a Facebook user, please post a comment on your own timeline or on the Spectrabusters facebook page and encourage your friends and family to become involved. Please feel free to give out the contact address.
I recommend going to the Lowndes Area Knowledge Exchange (LAKE) website, www.l-a-k-e.org/. John Quarterman has very informative articles on this issue, and other concerns that impact Lowndes County.
If you have ideas or suggestions on how to grow the interest in stopping the gas line, please share.
Sabal Trail is actually a partnership of Spectra Energy Corp and NextEra Energy. If you go to www.naturalgaswatch.org you will find interesting details of gas line explosion and maintenance. One of special interest is titled of one article is “Spectra Energy Employees: We never bother to check natural gas pipeline for corrosion”. See also our hazards pages.
