IUB Summit Carbon Pipeline Hearing Enters Third Week

The Iowa Utilities Board hearing for the proposed Summit Carbon Solutions pipeline has entered its third week, and the company has a list of 15 witnesses scheduled to testify.

Property owners who object to having the pipeline run through their land testified during the first two weeks of the hearing. The company’s witnesses are scheduled to testify this week. Summit is seeking eminent domain authority so unwilling landowners would be forced to grant the company permanent access to more than 900 parcels, or sections of property.

The route for the proposed Summit pipeline stretches about 680 miles through Iowa, including several northwest Iowa counties, and would carry carbon from ethanol plants in five states to underground storage in North Dakota.
