Feds Direct Pipeline Company To Investigate Alternatives

A federal agency has directed the Texas-based company behind a proposed northeastern Ohio natural gas pipeline to investigate an alternative route that would relocate the $2 billion project to less populated areas.

The city of Green has proposed moving about 103 miles of the Nexus pipeline away from  southern Summit County and northern Stark County into southern Stark and Wayne counties, then western Wayne, Medina and Lorain counties.

The Akron Beacon Journal reports the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, which approves such pipeline projects, filed its directive to the company in a memo Tuesday.

The move came a day after Green proposed its alternative route to the agency.

Residents say the original route passes too close to residential areas.

Nexus Gas Transmission LLC says it will consider Green’s proposal.
