    My main concern was that if the pipeline were to leak it would go directly into the farm’s water supply.
    Yeah, no kidding.

    The people here who trot out the inevitability talking point (i.e., if they don't pump it through a pipe they'll inevitably transport it on the rails) never seem to talk about this.

    People who live on the kind of land you describe are almost always very aware of their water and very protective of it. I know I always was. Maybe living on land like that makes for a different set of priorities.

    Sure once I was young and impulsive, I wore every conceivable pin. Even went to socialist meetings, learned all the old union hymns. Ah, but I've grown older and wiser. And that's why I'm turning you in. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u52Oz-54VYw

      of so called evaluation when three farmers or ranchers who have lived their entire lives on the land could have produced a much more accurate assessment. You may ask why 3? Well you need one to drive the pickup, one to hold the coffee, and one to take a look!
