The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission recently ordered the Rover Pipeline to stop drilling under the Tuscarawas River because of concerns over a spill, according to the Associated Press.

The FERC wants Energy Transfer Partners, the company building the pipeline, to answer questions about the spill and consider other options to cross the Tuscarawas River. According to Ohio officials, 200,000 gallons of drilling fluid have been lost in a hole.

Energy Transfer Partners is developing the $4.2 billion pipeline across Ohio and into West Virginia and Michigan.

    We need more public education on the Pro’s & Con’s of pipelines. Trump’s infrastructure bill may reduce the time just to file & get approval for pipelines.
