(Bismarck, ND) -- Burleigh County officials have questions about the proposed Summit Carbon Solutions pipeline regarding environmental impacts and learning the impact of a potential leak from the structure.
The pipeline is being designed with the intention of capturing and safely disposing of CO2 in the atmosphere. However, county commissioners want to see an environmental impact study on the pipeline, along with a model that would illustrate the effects a pipeline leak. Despite this, attorneys for Summit Carbon Solutions say they can't release details that would put project's safety at risk.
A siting permit for the pipeline is currently being sought by the public service commission.
