Send Duke a Message – Settlement Checks Speak Louder than Words

Many Duke Customers will receive legal settlement checks in the coming weeks. If you have received a check, please consider donating these funds to NOPECincy’s pipeline opposition efforts.

For almost a year, we have told Duke that this pipeline does not belong in densely populated residential areas.  Citizens like you have communicated concerns through thousands of letters and petitions, phone calls and in-person meetings. Elected officials, local governments, employers, religious leaders and your friends and neighbors have heard you and share your concerns.  Unfortunately,

 Duke does not seem to be responding to concerns of the people they are supposed to be serving.

Make your concerns and objections LOUDER.  Leverage your financial support, in a way that will make Duke take notice.  Use Duke’s settlement checks to help support NOPE’s pipeline opposition intervention case.  

Our goal is to raise $50,000 for legal fees, expert witnesses and continuing to and advocate for all of our communities and citizens impacted by the pipeline. Thanks to your contributions, we are about halfway to our goal.

According to, the Residential Settlement Fund could be as much as $25 million dollars.  All we need is 0.5 percent of those funds to reach our $50,000 goal.  Residential customers are expected to receive $40-$400. Several residents we spoke with received $140.87.  If 200 people signed over their settlement checks to NOPE’s opposition fund, we could meet our goal.  Please be one of them!

What you need to do:

  1. Watch for the check in the mail. It may be easy for you to miss, as several people have commented that it looks like junk mail.  HERE is what it looks like.

  2. Endorse the check by signing the back and adding “pay to the order of NOPE, LLC”.  HERE is an example. 

  3. Mail to:, c/o Glenn Rosen, Treasurer, 9228 Bluewing Terrace,  Blue Ash, OH  45236   OR  If you’d prefer to make a donation via credit card, or to learn more, visit NOPECincy’s GoFundMe page
