Meeting on proposed gas pipeline in southern Davidson County set for Tuesday

Monday, January 7, 2013 at 6:32pm

State officials will host a public hearing Tuesday night regarding the proposed natural gas pipeline that would stretch nearly 14 miles from Antioch to Belle Meade, including a portion of the Radnor Lake State Natural Area.

The public hearing, held by the Tennessee Division of Water Resources, is set for Tuesday, Jan. 8, at 7 p.m. inside the Ed Jones Auditorium at Ellington Agricultural Center.

Last February, Piedmont Natural Gas sent out letters to some residents of southern Davidson County announcing the plans. At the time, the company said no start date had been set but the work was expected to begin and finish in 2013.

According to Piedmont, Radnor Lake will be traversed using horizontal direction drill so as to minimize surface disturbances.

Ellington Agricultural Center is at 440 Hogan Road.

Or they could just AVOID the state's oldest preservation. Why do we need to allow their greed to pick the route? For that matter, the total monopoly they hold on gas to begin with?

"Public meetings" are a sham. Sheeple show up expecting their concerns to be addressed completely unaware that they will be totally ignored since the decisions have already been made.

Hope the many users of this wonderful and unique wildlife preservation will STOP Piedmont's plan. Piedmont wants to save money and avoid upscalle residential areas for their dig . Stay out of the park! Run the pipeline through the vast spawl that already exists in Nashville.
