NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -
An informational meeting held Tuesday night for a controversial pipeline in southern Davidson County allowed residents to learn more about the project, but plenty of opposition remains.
Piedmont Natural Gas last year proposed a new pipeline that would run about 12 miles from Antioch to a facility near Chickering Road, including a stretch through the Radnor Lake State Natural Area.
Radnor Lake's lack of development is both a negative and a positive. Walkers and hikers love the serenity, but the absence of homes is part of what makes Piedmont prefer this route for its new south Nashville pipeline.
"I think it's a better place to put it than to try to put it through a residential area," said walker Dana Latour.
"As we look at the route, we have chosen a route that will have the least impact on homeowners. From an environmental standpoint, it's the least impactful of the routes we might have chosen," said Piedmont spokesman David Trustey.
Piedmont says the pipeline follows a Tennessee Valley Authority right of way, so they will not have to clear a lot of area. Trustey said that very little land at Radnor Lake will be disturbed.
The Tuesday night information session did not allow for residents to share their views on the project.
"I thought it was going to be a meeting where we heard people's comments," said resident Anna Haislip.
"I'm not thrilled about having ongoing construction through our backyard," said homeowner Lance Fittro, who lives in the Nippers Corner area of Nashville.
The proposed easement for the gas pipeline comes within one foot of Fittro's driveway, and he's not happy about the money he's being offered.
"It's just a huge imposition on our lives. The compensation was frankly insulting," said Fittro.
The gas company said they hope to begin construction around March 1. The project is expected to take around six months.
Piedmont said it needs to build this pipeline in order to be in compliance with federal regulations.
Another information session is set for Feb. 19 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Forest Hills City Hall.
