What’s At Stake

Spectra Energy plans to run the 42” Nexus natural gas pipeline through Medina County along a route going from southeastern Ohio to Ontario, Canada. This requires clear-cutting 100 feet of land up and down the route, whether forests, farms, towns, wetlands, or homes are already there. Compressor stations up to 80 acres in size will also be placed every 30-70 miles along the route. This pipeline is happening because of the growing “fracking” industry in Ohio.
