Sabal Trail ignored springs and underground connections –TSE Plantation

300x388 Sabal Trail proposes to go through an area riddled with these conduits, in TSE Plantation against Sabal Trail pipeline, by Thomas S.

Springs flow under the Suwannee River next to the Withlacoochee River (Falmouth Dye Trace)
