Ohio EPA Approves the Rover Pipeline

The Rover Pipeline has received its 401 Water Quality Certificate from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in yet further testament to the project’s planning and commitment to minimal impacts along the pipeline route. As the Toledo Blade relates:

The proposed, 830-mile Rover pipeline has received its Ohio Environmental Protection Agency water quality certification for construction in Crawford, Seneca, Hancock, Wood, Henry, Defiance, Fulton, Ashland, Noble, Monroe, Harrison, Carroll, Tuscarawas, Stark, Wayne, Richland, Belmont, and Jefferson counties.

The Rover Pipeline has taken a number of precautions to ensure that the project has no impacts on water resources, going above and beyond the regulatory minimums with regard to its construction and operation. CEPI is encouraged to witness the Ohio EPA approve the Rover Pipeline’s permit applications, and looks forward to subsequent approvals in the near future. The Coalition anticipates an expedient construction process, in order for the many economic benefits of the Rover Pipeline to begin.
