A conversation about the pipelines that service our state and our nation.
Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman has given the go-ahead to the revised Keystone XL pipeline route. That project has been the subject of intense debate since it was first proposed in 2008. And now its fate is up to President Barack Obama.
On a local level, Connecticut is in the midst of its own pipeline controversy... the MDC’s proposal of a 20-mile waterline to service the increasingly thirsty UConn Storrs campus. Many in the Farmington River Valley - which would provide that water - aren’t happy.
Today, pipelines for gas, water, oil... we’ll look at what goes into pipeline projects.
Correction: Mr. Brush was incorrect in stating that the Lower Farmington had been named a Wild & Scenic River.
