Foreign Pipeline Intervenor Training

Tuesday, January 17 at 7 PM – 8:30 PM

 DeKalb Public Library Bilder Meeting Room

309 Oak Street, DeKalb

Last month, the foreign pipeline company, Enbridge, announced a proposed new pipeline to run within one mile of DeKalb. The announcement appeared in their December Investor Briefing and will parallel the existing tar sands pipeline running through Boone, DeKalb, LaSalle, and Livingston Counties.

In Illinois, the pipeline approval process in the past has primarily involved only parties with a direct financial interest in the project, from the pipeline company to landowners. We think the public should have a strong voice in the process. In our training on January 17, we will show you how to participate in the legal pipeline approval process.

If you oppose additional foreign tar sands export pipelines in Illinois, or if you think foreign companies should not be able to seize land rights, or if you are concerned about pipeline safety, join us on January 17 at 7 pm at the DeKalb Library.
