NDEQ Provides Initial Feedback Report to TransCanada

The Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality (NDEQ) has provided an initial feedback report to TransCanada regarding the state’s evaluation of the rerouted portion of the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline project.

This is a preliminary step in the communication process in the ongoing project review, explained Pat Rice, NDEQ Pipeline Project Manager. The purpose of the report is to provide TransCanada with initial feedback based on public comments the agency has received, and to provide some observations from the agency. TransCanada is expected to consider the information from NDEQ’s initial feedback report as it develops a more defined route.
