Calling out Colonial Pipeline
I spoke at the Townhall meeting held at the Huntersville Recreation Center on May 17th.
I urged the Mayor and the Board of Commissioners to force Colonial Pipeline Representatives to hold Q&A sessions with the residents most impacted by the spill, and to force Colonial to answer questions in front of the board by revoking permits or holding them back until they agreed to appear.
I then presented 3 questions Colonial Pipeline needs to answer:
"How antiquated is the pipeline that it took two men riding dirt bikes in the woods to alert them of the leak?"
"What measures have been taken to ensure this never happens again?"
"Will an escrow account be created to compensate any of the homeowners who experience health issues or need to move because of the spill?"
"Will any of Colonial pipelines representatives be willing to drink well water from within a half mile of the spill in front of the entire town to prove its safe?"
