The session has to do with plans for a natural gas compressor station near Wadsworth to increase flow in the proposed NEXUS pipeline through northern Ohio. Such stations typically occupy 20 acres or more and raise concerns about emissions and environmental impacts on nearby areas.
Lee James, a spokesman for the EPA in Ohio, said, “The briefing session will be a presentation of information about compression stations and this proposal at Wadsworth. And then the meeting will move on to a more formal public hearing, where people in the community who want their comments, concerns, and some of the public recording can do so. “
The combined meeting and hearing will take place on February 16 at 6 p.m. at Cloverleaf Elementary School.
