Summit vows reform, will dismiss 160 condemnation lawsuits in South Dakota

Summit Carbon Solutions is working to refresh its maligned image in South Dakota.

Kylie Lange, a senior project manager, and Alex Lange, director of engineering, appeared at the Brown County Commission meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 26. They said Summit will resubmit its construction permit to build a carbon sequestration pipeline to the South Dakota Public Utilities Commission, but wants to be more transparent, open and pleasant in working with landowners and counties.

To that end, Alex Lange said, Summit is in the works of dropping 160 condemnation lawsuits filed against landowners across the state.
