From Staff Reports

GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Piedmont Natural Gas officials have settled on a route for a new pipeline needed to serve the growing population, according to a report on Greenville television station Fox Carolina on Nov. 10.

“The pipeline, which is part of the company’s Greenville County Reliability Project, has drawn criticism in the past from elected officials, landowners and environmentalists,” Fox Carolina reported. “Piedmont has hosted several events with the community to discuss the project and to get input on the proposed routes.’

Hank McCullough, community relations manager for Piedmont Natural Gas, said in a press release, “Working directly with this community and the impacted landowners has not only given us a clear path forward for this project, it also has allowed Piedmont to hear firsthand what’s important to the people of this community,. The company chose the ‘blue route,’ (which) begins near the post office in Taylors, and ends off Highway 25.”

Foz Carolina added, “The total route will be about 12 miles long. Land surveys begin next year, with construction starting in 2023 and the wrapping up in 2024.”
