CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A proposed $6 million natural gas pipeline for Clarksville has hit a snag. A Kentucky county wants access to the gas being transported on it before granting approval.
Todd County, Ky., officials won't grant approval for the line without being able to tap into its contents.
Clarksville Gas & Water General Manager Pat Hickey told The Leaf-Chronicle granting anyone access to the pipeline would increase administrative costs by $100,000 a year.
Dwight Luton works for Kentucky Energy Systems, the company that Guthrie, Ky., contracts with for their utilities. Luton says opening up the line would fill a void in southern Todd County.
Clarksville Gas & Water is trying to do environmental assessments, but not all of the 141 affected landowners have let the utility onto their property.
