Ruby Pipeline public meeting tonight

Tonight and Thursday night are the final opportunities for the public to meet with officials and discuss a draft environmental impact statement for the proposed Ruby Pipeline Project, a natural gas pipeline that would run through Northern Utah and three other states. The proposed pipeline would stretch from Wyoming, through Utah and Nevada, on to Oregon. Feedback is allowed on the project through August 10th. The public meetings will be held to gather comment on El Paso, Corp.’s Ruby Pipeline proposal. Two public meetings will be held in each of three states – Oregon, Nevada and Utah – and one meeting is scheduled in Wyoming. The two public comment meetings in Utah will be at the Brigham City Senior Center tonight at 7 p.m. and then at the Hyrum Civic Center on Thursday, July 30th at 7 p.m. These meetings will be conducted by Federal Energy Regulatory Commission staff members to receive comments on the draft environmental impact statement. This will be the last public comment period for the proposed pipeline. After the comments are reviewed, any significant new issues will be investigated and a final environmental impact statement will be issued. The 42-inch wide pipeline project is expected to cost approximately $3 billion, cover approximately 680 miles, and carry 1.5 billion cubic feet a day of natural gas from the region to the California-Oregon border. Several federal and state agencies have been working with FERC in preparing the impact statement. Read the entire
