Bluegrass Pipeline would affect at least 750 waterways, documents say

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - New documents show the proposed Bluegrass Pipeline would affect more than 750 rivers and streams during its construction.

A permit says the construction of the pipeline would require crews to dig trenches or drill underneath the waterways.

Opponents of the pipeline say that could cause lasting damage to the rivers and streams.

The Bluegrass Pipeline would carry natural gas through more than a dozen counties in Kentucky on the way to the Gulf of Mexico.

If the pipeline is built, it would be completed by the end of 2016.
