The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is hosting a public meeting next week to collect input on plans for the Nexus Gas Transmission pipeline, which would run through Lenawee County.

The meeting is at 6 p.m. Tuesday, May 5, at the Tecumseh Center for the Arts, 400 N. Maumee St., Tecumseh.

The meeting is a scoping session, the purpose of which is to let people weigh in on what issues FERC should consider when it conducts its environmental study on a proposed project. For more information about the approval process for a gas pipeline, see this story we published last year about the Rover Pipeline.

There are now three companies trying to get permission to run transmission pipelines through Lenawee County: Kinder Morgan (the Utopia East project), Spectra Energy (Nexus) and Energy Transfer Partners (Rover).
