PUC denies Navigator pipeline permits

(KCCR – Pierre, SD) The South Dakota Public Utilities Commission has rejected the first of two applications for proposed carbon dioxide transport pipelines in the state. The Navigator Heartland Greenway line would have run from Aurora in Brooking County south toward Sioux Falls then into Iowa on it’s way to Illinois. P-U-C Chair Kristie Fiegan says she questions Navigator’s ability to follow South Dakota’s regulations…

All three Commissioners detailed how the application fell short on the four points of consideration Commissioner Gary Hanson says Navigator never addressed possible financial hardships for landowners on the proposed route…

Commissioner Chris Nelson had no concerns about health and safety with the pipe, but the welfare of those on the route was different…

Navigator can appeal portions of the Commission’s decision. The P-U-C will take up the Summit Carbon Solutions CO-Two transport pipeline application next week, starting Monday at the Casey Tibbs Rodeo Center.
