Pipeline over basin stirs emotions in Napoleonville
The public hearing on the Bayou Bridge Pipeline project began relatively quietly, but opponents in the bleachers made themselves heard in short order.
This Feb. 8 hearing at the Napoleonville Community Center was the second public hearing on the controversial pipeline which, if allowed, will extend from Lake Charles to St. James Parish and the Mississippi River.
Technically, the Bayou Bridge pipeline would be the last section of the Dakota Access Pipeline, 1,300 miles to the north by the same companies, Energy Transfer Partners, Phillips 66 and Sunoco Logistics Partners.
