Dear Ms. Bose:
As State Senator for District 12 in the State of Georgia, I write
this letter in opposition to the proposed Sabal Pipeline location in
the populous area of Dougherty County / Albany, Georgia. The Sabal
Pipeline proposed location is a “reckless” proposal that negates the
health and safety of current and future residents of Dougherty
County / Albany, Georgia. Many of the residents Continue reading Sabal Trail is a reckless proposal –GA State Senator Sims to FERC →

PROPOSED SABAL TRAIL RAISES ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE, HEALTH CONCERNS
CONGRESSMAN BISHOP AND GEORGIA HOUSE DEMOCRATS DEMAND ALTERNATIVES
ALBANY, GA — Today, Congressman Sanford D. Bishop Jr. (GA-02)
spearheaded a letter with Congressmen John Lewis (GA-05), Henry
‘Hank’ Johnson Jr. (GA-04), and David Scott (GA-13) to the Federal
Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) raising concerns regarding Sabal
Trail’s application for a certificate of public convenience and
necessity to construct a 516-mile-long, 36-inch-diameter natural gas
pipeline through Alabama, Georgia, and Florida. The letter
especially cites the proposed location of the pipeline and an
accompanying compressor station in Albany, Georgia, which is located
in Dougherty County. The proposed location raises serious
environmental justice issues that have not been fully addressed by
FERC in its Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the
Congressman Bishop, as well as Representatives Lewis, Scott, and
Johnson, are members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), which
has highlighted issues of environmental justice. The Environmental
Protection Agency defines environmental justice as, Continue reading Four Congress members demand Sabal Trail move off of Albany, GA →

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:

Citizens renamed Sabal Trail the Sinkhole Pipeline because it doesn’t belong in the sinkhole-prone karst limestone of the Floridan Aquifer.
FERC can’t say they weren’t told, since videographers followed them
through all four cities so far; see for yourself.
