Stop The Southeast Market Pipeline

 

Stop the PipelineRight now, our waterways, wildlife, wetlands and forests are at risk. Three out-of-state gas companies want to run over 600 miles of underground gas pipeline through Alabama, into Georgia and across dozens of Florida counties. This project will destroy hundreds of acres of wetlands and threaten scores of important waterbodies. Take action now to stop the Southeast Market Pipeline Project!

Currently, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is reviewing a permit for the construction of the Southeast Market Pipelines Project. This project includes a labyrinth of pipelines - the longest and most destructive portion is the Sabal Trail pipeline. We need your voice – tell the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to deny the Southeast Market Pipeline Project.

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 the path of the pipeline. Additionally, 267 miles of the proposed route cross karst geology prone to sinkholes – risking pipeline rupture and explosion. We can’t afford those risks – take action now to stop this harmful project.

This project is complicated, has huge environmental impacts and would require significant time for adequate review by the public. So far, the Corps has refused to grant an extension of the comment period and has not made the full permits available to the public. The Corps needs to hear from us - tell the Corps to deny all permits for the Southeast Market Pipeline Project.

Industry claims that this pipeline project is needed to meet a growing need for natural gas in the Southeast, yet the proposed pipeline has capacity to transport over twice the additional need that is projected. Interesting. We think the true purpose of the pipeline is to profit from exporting natural gas overseas - hardly an effort worth destroying wetlands, waters and communities over.

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 Corps of Engineers say no to the Southeast Market Pipeline.
