The Keystone Pipeline

In the past few years Seneca and Nemaha County have enjoyed a windfall called The Keystone Pipeline. The construction crews have added a lot to our local economy. I've tried to get some idea of just how much, but can't find a source.

We were expecting the planned addition to the pipeline to generate another windfall. The concern about the possibility of harming Nebraska's water supply has changed TransCanada's plans. They're re-routing it. For more information, click here and here.

This link is to a map of the revised route. You'll see the new route is West of Hanover.

If you uses Google, here's a search page that has a lot more information – type in: keystone xl pipeline map+kansas

The US Department of State has announced that they expect to make a decision on the Keystone project by the first quarter of 2013. Following the decision, TransCanada expects to begin the construction in the first quarter of 2013, with an anticipated in-service date in late 2014 or early 2015.

If you'd like to join a “fight” to insure the pipeline is built, you might consider visiting this web page:  I am not supporting what these folks are doing and I'm not saying I'm against their efforts. I'm just passing along information you might find interesting or useful.
