Recently, the Orlando Sentinel took a closer look at the Sabal Trail Pipeline project. Here's an excerpt:
Sierra’s national staff is trying to stop Sabal Trail with a lawsuit, though the pipe is nearly complete. That hasn’t stopped state members of the group from campaigning to turn public opinion against the pipe and fracking.A substantial number of violations and non-compliance reporting have been done by citizens across the state of Florida on the Sabal Trail and Florida Southeast Connection pipelines projects. Witnessing construction activities have led to serious concerns about this pipeline corridor being constructed in wetlands, karstic soils and through protected waterways.
