City will ask feds to deny pipeline

Posted: Wednesday, June 17, 2015 3:40 pm

Council approved, by a 3-2 vote, an item to authorize Mayor Avinash Rangra to submit a petition to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to deny a Presidential Permit for the Trans-Pecos Pipeline.

It was one of three items on Tuesday’s agenda about the planned pipeline that would take natural gas from the Waha hub near Coyanosa to the Texas-Mexico border 12.5 miles upriver from Presidio. There, it would tunnel under the Rio Grande to meet with a Mexican pipeline that would take it to electric power generating plants and other industries in the interior.
