Would it or wouldn’t it cross the Withlacoochee River in Florida? (It certainly would in Georgia by 4 out of 5 proposed paths.) And Sabal Trail poo-poohed all four of Greenlaw’s suggested Alternatives, but FERC could still require any one of them. Here are Sabal Trail’s own maps of Greenlaw Alternatives 1-4:
Filed 15 September 2014 with FERC as Sabal Trail Transmission, LLC submits its Response to August 26, 2014 Staff’s Comments on Draft Resource Report under Docket No. PF14-1. The previous day Chris Mericle had hosted FERC’s John Peconom and Sabal Trail’s Andrea Grover, among many others at the affected area on the Withlacoochee River in Hamilton County, Florida, and apparently gave the impression that Sabal Trail was going to move off of the Withlacoochee River in Florida.
Yet in this response, Sabal Trail says (twice):
Sabal Trail continues to evaluate other potential route alternatives across the Withlacoochee River and will file additional information with the Project Application, as applicable.
And of course the Greenlaw Alternatives 1,2, and 4 all would cross the Withlacoochee River in Georgia, as would Sabal Trail’s preferred route.
Appended are images of each page of Sabal Trail’s response to FERC, and the PDF is on FERC’s website.
