"The shale boom and low prices have encouraged a pipeline bonanza in the U.S. Fourteen new pipelines - carrying both oil and natural gas- are either on the drawing board or are nearing completion.
Like many of these pipelines, the Sabal Trail pipeline crosses major watersheds, environmentally sensitive areas, and residential neighborhoods, where property is being seized by eminent domain.
DeSmog previously has examined growing public opposition to the pipeline, with citizens in Florida and Georgia citing numerous construction violations that could cause environmental destruction.
Opponents of the 515 mile long pipeline allege that the fast and clumsy installation has followed a fast tracked approval process, unencumbered by proper government oversight. And they doubt most of the estimated 1 billion cubic feet of fracked gas flowing through Sabal Trail each day will be needed in Florida.
Which raises the question, critics say: Where will most of the gas be heading?" #StopSabalTrail #SabalPipeline #DAPL #WaterIsLife
