Are You SAFE?
Residents living in the Seville/Wadsworth/Medina areas, take note of the map below. This is the location of proposed Nexus Gas Compressor station at 8707 Guilford Road. The site is proposed to have a 26,000 HP compressor to pressurize natural gas up to 1,500 PSI for the 36″ Nexus gas pipeline. Negotiations are already underway with the 75 acre farm landowner (Alfred Ellis – Brother of Lafayette Twp Trustee Lynda Bowers) for the proposed site.
There are three circles you can turn on or off on the map. The circles represent a 5, 3 and 1 mile radius from the Compressor Station. These are the zones or fallout areas where you can expect different levels of contamination to soils, waterways and most importantly heath issues. In recent studies, residents within 1 mile of compressor stations experienced throat irritation, headaches and noise bleeds due to numerous toxic gasses being emitted from the compressor.
High Noise levels and Continuous Bright Light are also major concerns.
As for safety, this compressor station will be monitored remotely from Texas. Only a lone security guard will be stationed at the site. If there is an incident or explosion, it could last for hours and the evacuations could be miles.
