The Citizens Alliance for Responsible Development (CARD) is asking residents concerned about the proposed Permian Highway Pipeline (PHP) to express their feelings to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, which are currently reviewing Kinder Morgan’s 42-inch natural gas pipeline project.
The pipeline would carry natural gas from the fields of West Texas to near Houston on the Gulf Coast. Its proposed route takes it through the Wimberley Valley and within a mile of Jacob’s Well, crossing the Blanco River twice, and coming through some of Kyle’s proposed subdivisions.
“The pipeline profits will go elsewhere, the threat is to our land and our community,” CARD said in a press release. “In the next few weeks significant additional roadblocks to the PHP will be announced but it’s still going to be an uphill fight.”
“Your voice may be just one, but if it is one of many, it’s powerful,” David Baker of the Wimberley Valley Watershed Association said.
