7/29 Adams County Public Hearing – Resist the Front Range Natural Gas Pipeline!

Posted: July 19, 2013 by belgianwitch in Uncategorized



Adams County Board of County Commissioners Public Hearing

4430 South Adams County Parkway, Brighton 80601

Enterprise Products Partners, Anadarko Petroleum Corporation and DCP Midstream are teaming up under the name “Front Range Pipeline” to try to craft a 16-inch diameter pipeline to carry natural gas liquids from north-east Colorado to Skellytown, TX where it will cross the Mid-American Pipeline (operated by Enterprise). At this point it will turn into the “Texas Express Pipeline” and end at Enterprise’s fractionation and storage complex.
On July 11th the Adams County Planning Commission voted unanimously to DENY recommendation that the County Commissioners approve this project. Front Range Pipeline (FRP) had not supplied the requested safety records to the planning board, and there were multiple community members who testified to the misconduct and safety violations of FRP. The planning commissioners were neither fooled nor impressed by the oil and gas executives’ expensive suits and smug grins. The planning commissioners should be applauded for their sharp assessment of the bs that was being presented. They cut to the chase about FRP’s lack of respect for the approval process and their lack of integrity regarding their dealings with the people of Adams County. The chairwoman even went on to state that she was in favor of pipelines, but that she did not approve of the way this hearing was going. Audio of the hearing in its entirety can be found here (scroll down to the Planning Commission 7/11 Audio).

It was obvious to all that these companies have nothing but contempt for the communities they pollute, and think nothing of using their eminent domain rights to take people’s homes just to save on their own costs.

Please join us in urging the Adams County Commissioners to heed their planning commissioners’ recommendation that it would be in the best interest of Adams County not to allow this environmentally devastating project!
