Proposed pipeline to go through area

FOSTORIA — A proposed 810-mile natural gas pipeline to connect the Marcellus and Utica Shale production areas to markets serving the Midwest, Great Lakes and Gulf Coast regions will pass through the northeastern corner of Hancock County and near Fostoria.
A map of the proposed pipeline may be viewed at the Reference Department of the Findlay-Hancock County Public Library, ET Rover Pipeline reported.
The pipeline also would extend through 17 other Ohio counties.
The $4.3 billion project would create a temporary workforce of up to 10,000 construction jobs and an estimated $153 million in tax revenue paid yearly to the states and counties crossed by the pipeline while it is in operation.
Additional information on the project can be found on the ET Rover Pipeline website at
