Courtesy of Lowndes Area Knowledge Exchange, you can now see small, big, huge, and PDF versions of all 527 alignment maps Sabal Trail filed with FERC in April 2016: follow this link.
Having these maps online like this makes it easier to see what’s in them. Sabal Trail told FERC Okapilco Creek was not among the streams for which the Georgia legislature denied river-drilling easements (and for which Sabal Trail got the easements later anyway by suing the state in county Superior Courts). Yet Sabal Trail’s alignment maps from April 2016 seem to say that fracked methane pipeline crosses Okapilco Creek a couple of times in Brooks County, Georgia.
Here’s one of those times, in which the road names don’t match (Golding Road is know to google maps as McRae Road and Spain Road as CR 3) and what Sabal Trail is calling Okapilco Creek isn’t where I seem to find that creek on other maps.
So I’m guessing what Sabal Trail meant was Okapilco Creek isn’t big enough to rate Horizontal Directional Drilling, and they’re crossing it somewhere by open cut, like many other creeks they aim to cross. Or some other creek they’re calling Okapilco Creek.
