Texan and Floridan FERC-enabled
wants Colquitt County
cheap invasion route,
even though that threatens local
property rights, taxes,
while there’s no demonstrated
for the fracked methane nor any definitive plans even to sell it in Georgia,
so the Moultrie city government
opposes the pipeline
that it should at least be put on hold until local concerns
are adequately considered by FERC and GA-EPD.
So both of the counties (Dougherty and Colquitt)
and both of their county seats (Albany and Moultrie)
named by Sabal Trail as needing gas through MGAG
have passed resolutions saying they don’t want the
pipeline at all, along with
Terrell County, Brooks County, Lowndes County, and Valdosta, Georgia,
plus Hamilton County, Florida.

A foreign company wanting to take local resources and not even

Swiss company Nestlé used the same playbook to try to grab
water from the Wacissa River that Houston company Spectra Energy
is trying to gouge its hundred-foot right of way for its yard-wide
fracked methane pipeline through Alabama, Georgia, and Florida.
Wacissa and Jefferson County, Florida fought back and won.
Counties can do the same to stop that pipeline.

Kristofer Graham, Naylor, GA.
Kristofer Graham, I am concerned about the proposed Sabal Trail
pipeline going though Lowndes County, Georgia. Because I fear it
danger to our land environment and the people family’s that live
near that natural gas pipeline route. Then I noticed the natural gas
pipeline is going though many of our wetlands and our watersheds.
Well that really concern me because they can destroy our natural
resource, which that mean our Eco system is destroy like Continue reading Please help us save our Precious lands, wetlands, watersheds –Kristofer Graham to FERC
