If you are a pipeline builder, how do you get rid of some of the pipeline trash and some of the trees you felled for your right-of-way? Burning!

Over a few week’s time, I could see dozens of these burns in the distance. This practice should not be allowed. We don’t need no stinking extra air pollution. The MXP DEIS (in section 4.11.1.2.3 on page 4-267) says open burning in not currently planned. Since the pipeline guys might change their mind, the DEIS must be revised to say, “open burning will never be used.”

The bottom photo shows some matting timbers and other pipeline trash that was burned at this location for many weeks.
