Letter to editor:

I visited with an individual from the environmental department. He is very concerned. The carbon pipelines are trying to move too quickly with many unanswered questions.

As this project moves along, landowners and rural communities need to be aware and cautious . These new pipeline projects have not been approved by the state. If a landowner signs a voluntary easement, it is legal binding if the project is not approved, or if the company goes bankrupt, or if the project becomes obsolete.

As residents and landowners, we need more information about the risks, hazards and liabilities this project poses. Out of state companies stand to make millions of dollars in profit over the years if these projects are approved, but they can’t make money if they don’t have access to our land.
