KM/TGP representatives tote “collocation” as the reason the proposed route is preferred. Make no mistake, the limited amount of land in an existing KM/TGP right-of-way (ROW) is a measly 10.7 acres of the 1,885 acres they’ll be decimating during construction (right table 2.2-1). Further the KM/TGP existing ROW represents about 2% of the “new” land which would remain permanently altered by the permanent 50′ easement across the state, compressor stations, and meter stations.
Using the KM/TGP justification of preferred route, it’s easy to see that the NED easement would later offer an existing ROW and therefore a “preferred route” for future pipeline projects.
