On Feb. 16, 2017, TransCanada submitted a new application with the Nebraska Public Service Commission for a route for its proposed Keystone XL pipeline project. The process could take eight months to a year, and will include hearings and opportunities for public comment.
ACTION: Send a hand-written letter to the Nebraska Public Service Commission (PSC) with your concerns about the Keystone XL pipeline.
(Then let us know you mailed your letter! Fill out the form below:)
- Explain why you are against the Keystone XL pipeline.
- Urge the PSC to reject TransCanada’s permit application.
- As an agriculture-based state, we do not need to take more agricultural land out of production for a foreign pipeline.
- The pipeline needs to be rerouted to avoid the sandy porous soils of the Sandhills, shallow water tables, and recharge part of the Ogallala aquifer.
- Urge the PSC to require that TransCanada “twin” Keystone XL with its existing Keystone I pipeline — which would see Keystone XL constructed inside the existing easements and established pipeline corridor in Nebraska.
