At What Cost? Pipelines, Pollution and Eminent Domain in the Rural South,
by Mark Albertin.
And yes, he’s happy for it to be shown elsewhere; just ask, and you can set up a local viewing like
in Live Oak last night, or the previous premieres along the Georgia coast.
Most of the issues are the same for
Spectra Energy’s invading Sabal Trail fracked methane pipeline
as for Kinder Morgan’s invading Palmetto petroleum products pipeline
that is the subject of the movie.
Thanks to Push Back the Pipeline for getting this movie made about Kinder Morgan’s proposed petroleum products pipeline from South Carolina across the Georgia coast to Jacksonville, Florida.
Special thanks to Eileen, Lori, and Debra and the Woman’s Club of Live Oak for the movie showing last night, to WWALS Watershed Coalition and the Woman’s Club of Live Oak for hosting, and to Our Santa Fe River, and Gulf Restoration Network for helping promote it.
Don’t forget the hike to the Suwannee River Sabal Trail crossing 8:15 AM Thursday 28 February 2016 with Suwannee and Hamilton County Commissioners.

Georgia State Properties Commission agenda for Wednesday has nothing
on it about Sabal Trail or easements under Georgia rivers.
So the river land giveaway
by the GA DNR board last month
will not be confirmed this month.
So there’s more time to contact the SPC board to stop Sabal Trail from crossing the
Withlacoochee River, Okapilco Creek, Ochlockonee River, Flint River, and Chattahoochee River.
SPC doesn’t provide any contacts for their board members, but
here are their main contacts:
270 Washington Street, Suite 2-129
Atlanta, Georgia 30334
Steve Stancil, State Property Officer, 404-656-3253
Marvin Woodward, Deputy State Property Officer, 404-463-5608
Frank Smith, Deputy Executive Director, 404-656-5602
And we know how to reach the governor’s office:
Somebody should go Continue reading Sabal Trail not on GA State Properties Commission Agenda
Leases and permanent easements to cross the
Chattahoochee River, Flint River, Ochlockonee River, and Withlacoochee River:
that’s what the Georgia Department of Natural Resources Board proposes to
vote on this Wednesday morning, in Atlanta, far from any of the proposed crossings
or the directly affected counties, with no publ ic hearing and minimal public announcement.
You can call them or send them email to ask them not to do that.
Or show up in Atlanta 9AM Wednesday 23 September 2015 and speak; bring a written statement if you do that.
Atlanta metro people, we need you to go to that meeting!

After a long string of safety incidents and later-contradicted
assertions in the media, would you trust Sabal Trail to drill under
your rivers in your aquifers and near your farms, schools, homes, and springs?
Here’s stage two of
Sabal Trail’s three-stage horizontal directional drilling (HDD) method,
according to its document
How We Cross Rivers and Streams,
The Colquitt County newspaper noticed the
EPA questions to FERC about the Sabal Trail fracked methane pipeline,
and even got sort of a response out of Sabal Trail.
Alan Mauldin wrote for the Moultrie Observer 26 April 2014,
EPA letter lists concerns with Sabal Trail,
One issue raised by EPA is whether laying a new, 36-inch pipeline in
proximity to a 10-inch pipeline built in the 1950s would present a
danger to the public.
The alternate route that would take the pipeline through the heart
of Colquitt County would for some of its path run parallel to the
old iron pipeline.
“Consequently, concerns exist with the safety of Continue reading EPA comments in Moultrie Observer
