CLEVELAND (AP) — A mayor has upped the ante in the fight over a proposed high-pressure natural gas pipeline by hiring attorneys to file a lawsuit aimed at stopping the pipeline from being built or stopping the project altogether.
This local spill was part of Rover’s estimated 2 million gallons of drilling fluid pollutants into wetlands “adjacent to” the Tuscarawas River last week, according to a violation filed by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The Rover Pipeline has been under construction in Ohio for less than a month, but it is already polluting Ohio’s waterways. The project was the source of two serious spills last week according to notices of violation filed by the Ohio EPA Division of Environmental Response, Investigation and Enforcement.
Construction of the Rover natural gas pipeline resulted in more than 2 million gallons of drilling fluids being spilled at two different locations earlier this month.

A local attorney known for defending activists today called Houston-based Spectra Energy’s apparent oversight of the Bowling Green Fault line “an astonishing screw-up” that could help his cause and complicate company efforts to build its proposed $2 billion NEXUS Gas Transmission pipeline through northwest Ohio. Flanked by about 50 sign-carrying demonstrators along the banks of the Maumee River, at Farnsworth Metropark’s Roche de Boeuf visitor center south of Waterville, Terry Lodge discussed the request for a hearing he filed last week with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, or FERC, based on the region’s potential seismic activity and its porous karst geology. Only a few hundred feet away, along a paved hiking trail, lies a Metroparks of the Toledo Area marker in front of a
A newly formed citizens group is hosting a rally near Waterville at 2 p.m. Wednesday to discuss a Bowling Green State University researcher’s claim that northwest Ohio is too quake-prone for a massive natural gas transmission pipeline to coexist with it. The group, called United Communities for Protecting our Water and Elevating Power — or UC4POWER for short — has filed a request for a hearing before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to express seismic concerns it has about the 36-inch NEXUS Gas Transmission pipeline that Houston-based Spectra Energy and others are planning. The pipeline is to transport natural gas extracted from fracked shale in southern Ohio and send it to southwest Ontario via northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan.
