Information Meetings Hosted by Navigator
Navigator has just released its updated CO2 pipeline map that includes a proposed lateral from Sangamon County south and through Montgomery County (see map, below). The company will be hosting two, 90-minute virtual meetings this week:
Wednesday, February 15
5:30pm to 7pm
Thursday, February 16
11:30am to 1pm.
Here’s the link to register:
This is your opportunity to learn what is being proposed and to ask questions about the pipeline. There has been no information submitted about the diameter of what Navigator is calling its “Montgomery lateral”, the spacing or location of shutoff valves, the type and location of other equipment required, the distance of the pipeline from occupied structures (particularly residences), emergency response planning, and more.
The map that has been provided appears to show sequestration in both Christian and Montgomery Counties. We know from information submitted to the ICC that Navigator listed Sangamon County as a sequestration site, too. Why are all these sites required? Are there more? How does Navigator intend to get landowner leases, when there has been such concern about potential impacts to farmland and drinking water, and the ability to safely and permanently store carbon dioxide (at least 100 years, until it solidifies)? Who will pay for long-term maintenance and monitoring, once Navigator leaves?
We hope that you will make one of these meetings a priority, and that you will share this email with others.
