#Fracking #Pipelines in Your Neighborhood: Muddy Stream
In comparison to the OVC, the MXP is much longer and crosses many more streams. What happened here could likely happen during stream crossing done anywhere by any pipeline company. It seems like the construction company had a significant lack of proper, accurate planning, and a total underestimation of stream flow volumes.More

But such is the regard of these companies for the communities they impact, and such is FERC's regard for the communities the agency subjects to these kind of impacts.More

#Fracking #Pipelines in Your Neighborhood: Traffic — What a Clustertruck!

The daily restriction of routine travel my neighbors and I experienced went way beyond minor during the 11-month-long construction period of another pipeline. Our experience completely contradicts what FERC states.More
