Community Fights Against Compressor Station

Posted at 10:26 PM, May 02, 2016

A community has come together to fight a proposed gas compressor station in Cane Ridge.

They met Monday evening because a Houston-based Columbia Pipeline Group bought a 70-acre piece of land near Barnes Road and wants to use that space to build a compressor station.

A similar debate has been playing out in Joelton. Neighbors were worried it would dramatically alter the area and could present certain dangers not only to them, but across parts of Davidson County.

“I mean, we've had a really good turnout, a really good response from a lot of people, they don't want it. I mean it's just as simple as that,” said Chris Tuley. “No one is telling Columbia that we don't want natural gas because we all use it every day, we just don't want it in a residential area. Keep it in an industrial area where it belongs.”

Opponents of the proposed compressor station were urged to attend public forums on the issue.
