The line will go through parts of Ross, Pickaway and Fayette counties
An informational meeting is planned October 1st by the Ross County Farm Bureau for those interested in learning more about a proposed natural gas pipeline that would be built to handle natural gas liquids from the shale producing regions in three states, including Ohio.
According to the Chillicothe-Ross Chamber of Commerce newsletter, the Bluegrass Pipeline would run from Mercer County in far western Pennsylvania through the eastern Ohio counties heavily involved in the shale gas production, through southern Ohio and ending in Breckinridge County in Kentucky. The owners hope to have it in service by late 2015.
The proposed route in Ross County would start at the northwestern edge at the junction of Fayette and Pickaway counties, follow Ross’ border south to just past U.S. 35 where it heads into Fayette and then Highland counties.
The informational meeting is set for the Ag Center at 831 College Ave. in Lancaster at 7pm on Tuesday, Oct. 1. Farm Bureau officials will be on hand to answer questions. To learn more about the project and to see a map of the proposed line, go to www.bluegrasspipeline.com.
