Landowners weigh in on potential CO2 pipelines

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — The South Dakota Public Utilities Commission unanimously voted against an application to build a CO-2 pipeline through several counties on the eastern side of the state on Wednesday.

Joy Hohn owns land in Minnehaha County and is pleased with the PUC’s decision to deny the Navigator’s pipeline application, however, the Summit pipeline hearing is next week.

“I know that many landowners are sleeping much better the last few nights and continuing forward we hope that we’ll have that same result for Summit,” said Hohn.
