Ten Different Pipelines Might Cross The Appalachian Trail

The Daily Yonder’s Nancy Andrews has an extensive article about the many proposed pipelines in Appalachia. In it she notes:

“The Appalachian Trail Conservancy, which represents the 30 clubs that take care of the Appalachian National Scenic Trail, took notice of the pipeline expansion. 

Laura Belleville, the organization’s vice president of conservation and trail programs said at one point staff members at her organization were reviewing upwards of 10 different pipeline proposals that planned to cross the Appalachian Trail. 

The increase in pipeline proposals caused the staff to question how many of these pipelines were really needed to sustain the energy resources in demand.”
