Permit Hearing Scheduled for Proposed Summit Carbon Pipeline

The Iowa Utilities Board has set the permit hearing schedule for the proposed Summit Carbon Solutions carbon dioxide pipeline.

The I-U-B says the hearing on the pipeline which is projected to cover 688 miles in Iowa will be August 22nd at the Cardiff Event Center in Fort Dodge. The Board will begin the hearing with testimony of landowners subject to eminent domain, and there will be a video livestream of the entire hearing.

The Summit Carbon pipeline would run through several area counties including Ida, Cherokee, O’Brien, Clay, and Palo Alto.

The Iowa Utilities Board has already been collecting evidence from those in favor, or who oppose the proposed pipeline. The I-U-B will add in the information presented at the hearing before making a final decision.
