Supervisors to meet with pipeline on Thursday at 11 in Donnellson
DES MOINES – The Iowa Utilities Board (IUB) today filed a letter approving the dates, times and locations for 13 additional public informational meetings requested by Navigator Heartland Greenway LLC (Navigator). The meetings are to discuss Navigator’s proposal to build and operate a large-scale pipeline system that will capture and transport liquefied carbon dioxide from local facilities spanning approximately 1,300 miles across five Midwest states, including Iowa.
Lee County Supervisors will meet with pipeline officials on Thursday at the American Legion in West Point at 11 a.m. The meeting is open to the public but is being planned as an information only meeting with limited to no questions being allowed.
The pipeline is projected to span 58.29 miles through the county with a split northwest of Donnellson off 190th Avenue. It will impact 95 land tracts along the route and 74 property owners.
Navigator requested the meetings in a letter filed on June 15, 2022, and also filed a new proposed pipeline route overview map in Docket No. HLP-2021-0003.
