What Does the June 3 U.S. DOT Restart Order Require, Mean, and Raises Questions About TransCanada's Pipeline Safety?

Much news has appeared as a result of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s June 3, 2011 issuance of an Order permitting TransCanada to restart its Pipeline I. The news suggests problems are resolved. But, there is more to this.

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s actual Order is far from comforting. The Order suggests significant problems are present, and that U.S. DOT deems it necessary to impose basic safety and inspection requirements on TransCanada as conditions for reinvigorating its first pipeline, which crosses eastern Nebraska from Cedar County in the north to Jefferson County in the south.A massive second pipeline is proposed by TransCanada about 150 miles to the west, across the counties of Boyd, Holt, Wheeler, Greeley, Nance, and on south. |Full Story legal news article trial lawyer attorney lawsuit litigation justice
