BLUE ASH, Ohio (AP) — In a story June 16 about a natural gas pipeline in southwestern Ohio, The Associated Press reported erroneously on an energy company’s plans. Its new pipeline would augment an existing one, not replace it.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Cincinnati opposing proposed natural gas pipeline
Cincinnati is opposing proposals to build a 12-mile natural gas pipeline to augment the existing system.
BLUE ASH, Ohio (AP) — Cincinnati is opposing proposals to build a 12-mile natural gas pipeline meant to augment the existing system.
Duke Energy met with residents in a Cincinnati suburb Wednesday to answer questions about the company’s pipeline proposals in Hamilton County.
The energy company says a study found that a new line is necessary to meet future natural gas demands.
Cincinnati’s City Council passed a motion of opposition Wednesday afternoon citing safety and environmental questions.
Hamilton County commissioners are asking Duke to increase its public notice to residents living near the proposed routes.
Duke says it is reviewing those resolutions and will determine how to proceed before submitting two final proposals next month.
