Three minutes isn’t much, is it?
Sabal Trail visited me, today. I was handed a map by a Senior Right of Way Agent out of Woodland, TX. Map shows the pipeline cutting diagonally across the SW corner of my woods. The scale is in kilometers, so I’m still trying to calculate how close it comes to my art studio and home. Just eyeballing it, the distance appears to be less than a quarter mile.
Even if, theoretically, there were zero explosion threat, a mere leak could potentially ignite my woods and burn me out. No roads lead to my woods to facilitate firefighters. How will I ever get a homeowner insurance policy with that threat looming? Moreover, my woods connect to neighbors’ woods on the east and south because I’m a corner property that runs both directions.
I’m getting ill over this… can’t eat, can’t sleep. Get this: Told the Agent that. He asked me if I was trying to say that I would like to see the pipeline re-routed? HUH? I was dumbfounded and asked him, “Are you seriously asking that question?” He said he would “make a note (about re-routing).”
