Woodbury County Residents Raise Concerns About Carbon Dioxide Pipeline

Sioux City, Iowa — A group of Woodbury County residents appeared at the county supervisors’ meeting this week with concerns about the proposed Summit Carbon Solutions carbon dioxide pipeline.

Gale Palmquist of rural Lawton says the pipeline would cross her property.

Palmquist’s family has farmed the land since the 1800s. Woodbury County engineer Mark Nahra told the residents that eminent domain has not been approved for any pending pipeline.

Supervisors chair Rocky De Witt told the residents he is sympathetic to their concerns.

De Witt says the project is still in its preliminary stages as Summit is looking for the best route.
