Say 'No' to the Sabal Trail Pipeline

 

SabalTrailPipelineActionAlertFlorida’s besieged waterways are facing a new threat: Sabal Trail Transmission, LLC, wants to run a natural gas pipeline over, under and through our aquifers, rivers and springsheds. Our waters are already under threat from runoff pollution and over-pumping, and this major pipeline would risk sinkholes, gas leaks and aquifer contamination. Florida’s water is too important to take these risks—but we can say ‘no’ today!

Sabal Trail is seeking a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and will submit its preferred pipeline route sometime in 2014.  This 300 mile long natural gas pipeline would cut a swath across the springs and rivers of north Florida, through the Green Swamp to Kissimmee and on to Florida Power & Light’s plant at Port St. Lucie.  It would transport a minimum of 1.3 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day across the Florida peninsula, and it would risk explosion due to the corrosive karst geology of the region.

Tell the FERC to disapprove the Sabal Trail pipeline.

The federal approval Sabal Trail is seeking is the last step in a process that began with a go-ahead from our own Florida Public Service Commission (PSC), who based their approval on the “need” for more natural gas in Florida.  Even Sabal Trail has admitted that “cost effective conservation measures” could replace some of this need, but so long as the fossil fuel industry blocks the efforts of Floridians to fully develop energy efficiency and renewable energy options, we will be beholden to the oil and gas companies that endanger our communities and waterways. 

Stand up to this big industry bully and say no to the Sabal Trail Pipeline!

As Sabal Trail determines the route for its pipeline, we need your help to tell FERC that Florida’s waters are too important to risk on a fossil fuel pipeline.  Tell FERC there is no “need” to further damage our rivers, springs and aquifer; tell them to disapprove the Sabal Trail pipeline.
