Last Chance to Confront FERC -Your Presence Needed

FERC pipe

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has released its Environmental Impact Study and basically said the Sabal Trail Pipeline will have no significant negative impact on the land, the people, the river, the springs, the wild creatures that live in its path.

Indeed, they admit there will be some impact, but they say that if they don’t build the pipeline, then the fracked liquid natural gas will not arrive at its destination in South Florida.  So it seems the pipe will go across the land and under the rivers and through the springs heartland.

  1. For people who want to comment but can’t attend a meeting there is this from the draft of the environmental impact study: “For your convenience, there are four methods you can use to submit your
    comments to the Commission. In all instances, please reference the appropriate docket
    numbers (CP14-554-000 for the FSC Project; CP15-16-000 for the Hillabee Expansion
    Project; or CP15-17-000 for the Sabal Trail Project) with your submission. The
    Commission encourages electronic filing of comments and has expert staff available to
    assist you at (202) 502-8258 or [email protected]. Please carefully follow these
    instructions so that your comments are properly recorded.
    1) You can file your comments electronically using the eComment feature on the Commission’s website (www.ferc.gov) under the link to Documents andFilings. This is an easy method for submitting brief, text-only comments on a project;
    2) You can file your comments electronically by using the eFiling feature on
    the Commission’s website (www.ferc.gov) under the link to Documents and
    Filings. With eFiling, you can provide comments in a variety of formats by attaching them as a file with your submission. New eFiling users must first create an account by clicking on “eRegister.” If you are filing a comment on a particular project, please select “Comment on a Filing” as the filing type; or

  2. We need to fill the room! It would be great if all 1,800 people who have seen this could take the time to attend tomorrow night’s meeting in Lake City at the Columbia High School Auditorium
    469 SE Fighting Tiger Drive
    Lake City, FL 32035 , arrive at 5:30 pm to fill out a card and say something at the podium (up to 3 minutes). FERC is from Washington D.C., SpectraEnergy is from Texas. You are from here, it’s your land, your quality of life that will be impacted once this corridor is seized by eminent domain for a 36″ natural gas transmission pipeline sending dirty fossil fuels (begotten by fracking in the US) to our coast.

  3. Stop this now, not only will it compromise the pristine waters but all that digging I’m sure is destroying some archaeological artifacts that are protected by law last time I checked.
