Area residents learn more about Keystone XL

Jim Vanderloop of Cedar Rapids and Ralph Schmadeke of Albion look over materials at the information meeting on May 16.At an information meeting last Wednesday night, May 16, Boone County area residents took advantage of an opportunity to learn more about the proposed Keystone XL crude oil pipeline.

The new route corridor, announced in April, now travels through Antelope, Boone and Nance counties. More than 160 people attended the three-hour information session in the Boone County Event Center.

Certainly, concerns were raised about the pipeline, said Mike Linder, director of the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality (NDEQ).

However, most area residents simply wanted an up-close look at the pipeline corridor, and landowners wanted to see the corridor location in relation to their property.
