Say No to the Southeast Market Pipelines Project

 

Southeast Market Pipelines ProjectDestructive pipeline projects are popping up everywhere - threatening our environments and our communities. Right now, the waterways, wildlife, wetlands and forests of the southeast are at risk. Gas companies want to run over 600 miles of underground gas pipeline through the Gulf south – cutting through Alabama, into Georgia and across dozens of Florida counties. This project will destroy hundreds of acres of wetlands, threaten scores of important waterbodies and place communities at risk. Take action now to demand that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) reject the Southeast Market Pipelines Project.

Currently, the FERC is accepting comments on a draft environmental impact statement (DEIS) to consider the impacts of the Southeast Market Pipelines Project. This project includes a labyrinth of pipelines - the longest and most destructive portion is the Sabal Trail pipeline. If approved, this project will cross 650 miles of land, cutting through mature wetland hardwoods, polluting communities, threatening sensitive drinking water aquifers, and jeopardizing critical habitat for endangered and protected species along its path. We need your voice – tell the FERC to deny the Southeast Market Pipelines Project.

In the draft environmental impact statement, FERC stated that this project would not significantly impact the environment. We know differently. This pipeline project will destroy approximately 900 acres of wetlands and threaten nearly 700 waterbodies. Additionally, 267 miles of the proposed route cross areas prone to sinkholes – risking pipeline rupture and explosion. We can’t afford those risks – take action now to stop this harmful project.

Our water, environment and communities are too important to endanger for this destructive and unsafe pipeline project. Stand up to industry and demand that the FERC fully consider the environmental and community impacts of the Southeast Market Pipelines Project.
