Good news concerning the Million Pipeline. FERC (Federal Energy Regulatory Commission) dismissed the preliminary permit application filed by Wyco Power and Water, Inc. stating that the water pipeline doesn’t exist and has not been authorized to be built. Basically FERC thinks the permit application is premature and the project needs to be further planned, permits obtained etc… Permits from the National Park Service (Flaming Gorge NRA), US Forest Service, BLM, etc… There is a lot of work to get done before this project will be approved by FERC but don’t count a wealthy developer out just yet. This project isn’t likely to die this easy.
This is a small step forward in defeating the pipeline project.
