Proposal of Bluegrass Pipeline causes concerns in Pendleton County

By Karen Hyden, Reporter

The proposal of the Bluegrass Pipeline has created grave concerns for many leaders and citizens of Pendleton County.

The Pendleton Fiscal Court held a meeting concerning the proposed pipeline on Monday, August 19. After much deliberation it was decided to adopt a resolution regarding the proposed Bluegrass Pipeline. The concerns of the fiscal court were in reference to the lack of advance review by any governmental body as to the necessity, alternatives, routing, and public health, safety, and environmental consequences of natural gas liquids pipelines such as the proposed pipeline. As well as the possibility that landowners in Pendleton County may be burdened with easements on their property for the pipeline due to the threat that their property may be condemned in the absence of agreement.
