A group of individuals from Pendleton and neighboring counties met at 5:30 p.m. on August 5, 2013 at the Pendleton County Public Library. Some 25 citizens were in attendance. They expressed their opinions and shared information regarding the proposed Bluegrass Pipeline, which is a joint venture of Williams and Boardwalk Pipeline Partners. After the project is completed it would carry natural gas liquids from Mercer, Pennsylvania and Marshall, West Virginia through Ohio and into Kentucky, beginning with Bracken County, then through: Pendleton, Grant, Harrison, Owen, Scott, Franklin, Woodford, Anderson, Nelson, Marion, Larue, Hardin and Breckinridge. At that point the pipeline would connect with an existing line that runs to the Gulf Coast. From Pennsylvania to Louisiana the pipeline would stretch 1,100 miles.
