The Iowa Utilities Board is hosting a virtual informational meeting tonight about Navigator CO2’s proposed pipeline project.
The Heartland Greenway pipeline would carry liquid carbon dioxide under farmland from the Dyersville ethanol plant west – passing just north of Earlville, Delaware and Manchester into Buchanan County and points west across the state.
The majority of landowners are opposed to this proposed pipeline with concerns over eminent domain, loss of quality farmland, the mission of this project and – most importantly – safety.
The Delaware County Board of Supervisors and the Manchester City Council have announced that they are also opposed to the proposed project.
An in-person meeting was held in Manchester about a month ago, allowing the public to learn about Navigator’s project and share their comments. It was one of a dozen meetings held in counties across the state impacted by this proposed pipeline. And the Iowa Utilities Board will wrap up their meetings with a virtual meeting tonight at 6 pm – you can participate online through the Iowa Utilities Board WebEx system at https://iub.iowa.gov/board-activity/hearing-and-meeting-calendar.
