Crawford Supervisors Hear Update About Summit Carbon Solutions Pipeline
The Crawford County Board of Supervisors heard an update on the proposed Summit Carbon Solutions carbon dioxide pipeline and asked several questions about the project on Tuesday.
Kaylee Langrell of Turnkey Logistics started the presentation by saying Summit has agreements for about 80% of the nearly 25 miles of planned pipeline in Crawford County and a majority of the map overall. The fall update of the proposed route includes two mainline shut-off valves near Denison instead of three. Supervisor Jean Heiden asked if those being close to town are because of higher risk. Langrell says it’s because those are high-population areas. She also says pipelines are highly regulated and Summit is planning to build beyond federal specifications for reducing risk and environmental impact. Summit still hopes to start in August 2023 if the Iowa Utilities Board approves the permit application they submitted earlier this year.
