WCJB TV: Dunnellon Compressor Station Gas Leak 2017-08-11

WWALS member Janet Barrow told WCJB TV of Gainesville, Florida,

To the Canadian-owned company that now owns Sabal Trail: rural lives matter. No eminent domain for corporate gain. And Houston, you have a problem.

That would be Enbridge of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, which bought Spectra Energy of Houston, Texas, which is the builder and operator of the Sabal fracked methane Trail pipeline, now renamed Sabal Fail by locals.

Curtis Jennings, WCJB TV 20 News, 11 August 2017, Sabal Trail Pipeline in Dunnellon springs a leak,

The Sabal Trail Pipeline sprung a gas leak just west of Highway 200 in Marion County.

 And residents say they made phone calls to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission about the odor, but those calls haven’t been returned.

Dunnellon residents say they’re dealing with a smelly problem.

Alisha Mears said, “If we can’t trust their tanks that are standing outside the ground not to leak, how can we trust the pipeline in the ground not to leak.”

Some of the pictures WCJB used seem oddly familiar, especially that aerial, which I doubt they took themselves. It’s great they used them, although some attribution to WWALS would have been appreciated.
