On January 27th, the Dane County Zoning and Land Regulation Committee will decide what conditions to place on the zoning permit for the proposed Line 61 pump station near Marshall. 350 Madison asks that insurance be a condition of the new pump station construction.
Although we will not have an opportunity to speak at the meeting, a strong presence is important to show our county representatives how deeply committed we are to this issue. Will you join us?
WHAT: Dane County Zoning and Land Regulation Committee Meeting
WHEN: Tuesday, January 27th at 7:00 PM
WHERE: Room 354 in the City-County Building, 201 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd, Madison
Line 61 is an existing pipeline that cuts through Wisconsin from Superior to Delavan. If this change is approved, the 400,000 barrels of tar sands oil now flowing through Dane County will increase to 1.2 million barrels per day. That’s 45% more tar sands oil – right here in our backyard – than would flow through the proposed Keystone XL pipeline.
