While company officials have yet to reveal the exact route being proposed for the pipeline, initial surveying requests made to property owners and the BBA have already given locals a pretty good idea of what the company is considering.
Two other routes proposed are of similar length and would both utilize existing utility corridors and public right-of-way. Maps of the three alternative sites may be viewed online at www.beaverbrook.org/pipeline/.
