A map of the proposed Pipeline
The Marion, Clay and Wayne County Farm Bureaus have scheduled a meeting for Thursday night in Salem to discuss landowner rights for those who will be impacted by a proposed new pipeline. The Energy Transfer Crude Oil Company, LLC is developing plans to install a new 30 inch pipeline from a location near the Patoka Oil Tank Farm in Marion County heading southeast to four miles north of Johnsonville in Wayne County, passing through Marion, Clay and Wayne Counties.
Marion-Clinton County Farm Bureau Manager Gary Kennedy says impacted landowners are encouraged to attend the meeting that will be held from seven to nine Thursday night at the First Christian Church at 1200 West Boone in Salem.
The program will feature Laura Harmon, the SeniorCounsel with the Illinois Farm Bureau, as well as Chris Byron, an experienced pipeline attorney from Edwardsville. They will review the status of the ETCO Pipeline, as well as discuss what provisions need to be included in your examination permit and land easement.
The Illinois Farm Bureau strongly recommends that you consult with an experienced pipeline attorney prior to signing the examination permit or an easement for the pipeline.
To register for the meeting, contact the Marion County Farm Bureau at 548-2100, the Wayne County Farm Bureau 842-33-42 or the Clay County Farm Bureau at 665-3300.
