ZANESVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Work on an underground pipeline to transport liquid petroleum products across Ohio has begun in the eastern part of the state.
The pipeline will connect to existing lines between Pennsylvania and Texas, crossing at least 13 counties in Ohio. The 1,230-mile Appalachia-to-Texas Express Pipeline is a project of Houston-based Enterprise Products Partners.
Company officials have said the pipeline will bring about 4,000 construction and full-time jobs to the area and boost local communities' tax revenue.
The Zanesville Times Recorder (http://ohne.ws/1cy9pVM) reports some Muskingum County residents have opposed the pipeline, saying it will tear up the county.
But farmer Wayne Graham has leased some of his Frazeysburg property for a makeshift pipe yard for the project. He says the company has promised to restore his land after construction is completed.
