Reporting from #Sacredwatercamp in Live Oak Fl –  10/28/2016
Action today At Sabal Trail/Enbridge pipeline construction site/Staging area in Live Oak Fl where they plan to bore under the Suwannee and Sante Fe Rivers. The Sante Fe they will HDD drill under within the next 2 days!
Many eyes watching pipeline construction can catch shoddy work,
and even FDEP will step in to deal with the most egregious violations,
as Spectra and Rockford for FPL rush to try to finish by May 2017.
Shannon Larsen’s complaint to Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP)
at least briefly shut down destruction by Florida Southeast Connection (FSC)
at Ft Drum Creek, just south of Ft. Drum, Florida.
On the telephone just now she told me work had indeed been halted.
Please join us. Indigenous Tribes invite all people to a Sabal Trail Pipeline direct action demonstration near Live Oak/ Ellaville Fla on River Road @ Corner Of 197th Place And 199th Place Live Oak, Fl.

They will be drilling under the Suwannee River right down the road! We must act and act now.
Hdd Drilling truck at Withlacoochee River prepared to drill under the river. Thank you to jsq of WWals
As reported to me earlier today Sabal Trail has hauled matting, delivered a HDD truck to drill under the Withlacoochee River in Lowndes County:
"Sabal Trail is apparently in full preparation for HDD of the Withlacoochee River on U.S. 84 west of Valdosta in Lowndes Co. There is plenty of activity going on just off of Old Quitman Hwy such as a lot of acreage has been completely cleared, semi trucks going in and out hauling excavators and matting.
"The area that has been cleared (bare) is large enough to accommodate lots of pipe. The construction/destruction activity can be clearly seen from a public dirt road at the end of Old Quitman Hwy, if you would like to take pictures or video of the activities."
Or if you wish to plan a protest to try to halt this dangerous horizontal drilling under a river that flows into Florida and will adversely impact the Floridan Aquifer — our sole source of water. Exit 16 off I75 to Valdosta, go west and turn on Old Quitman Highway.
John Quarterman went to site today and took some pictures. He stated that while he was there a HDD — drilling truck arrived – see picture above.
