What are they thinking?
Duke Energy is planning to build a huge gas transmission line right through our neighborhoods. This is not like the distribution lines under our streets or the lines that bring power to our homes. This is an enormous high pressure, high capacity pipeline that would be built next to schools, daycare centers, places of worship, and people’s yards.
No one would even consider running a high-speed expressway right down the middle of a residential street or right next to a school playground. Much less, allowing tanker trucks carrying full loads of dangerous chemicals to drive up and down the street, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. That would be unthinkable.
Well, for many us in the Cincinnati area, this has become a very real possibility. Duke Energy plans to build an expressway for natural gas through our neighborhoods. This pipeline contains 720 pounds of pressure in a single inch cube. Multiply that by the area of the pipe and you get a 507,000 psi catastrophic accident waiting to happen.
