We need to stop the construction of Dominion Carolina Gas Transmission, which is the natural gas pipeline coming through Laurens and Greenwood counties.

This pipeline will come very close to Lake Greenwood and very close to the dam. This dam is already having work done to make it safer.

As we all know, gas pipelines have leaks, explosions and fires. If we have any of these problems in this area, it would be a disaster for both counties.

Greenwood County uses the lake to supply water to thousands of homes. It is also used by thousands for affordable recreation. We understand we will have to accept this company’s payment for our land even if it is not a fair price, because we are an eminent domain state.
