Pipeline Faces Environmental Problems

(Toledo, OH) More pipeline troubles are surfacing across northern Ohio.

State environmental regulators are ordering a company building a natural gas pipeline across Ohio to come up with a plan to clean up its spills from drilling and get rid of diesel-soaked mud.

The Ohio EPA is proposing a fine of $900,000 against the builders of the $4 billion dollar Rover pipeline. 

That natural gas pipeline crosses several Northwest Ohio counties, including Wood, Seneca, Fulton, Henry, and Williams counties as it carries product from eastern Ohio shale fields to other states. 

The company says it's trying to comply with Ohio EPA directives while working with federal regulators.
