Commerce City upset over natural gas pipeline
DENVER — Commerce City residents want to just say no to plans to run a 34-mile natural gas pipeline through their community.
At an open house meeting today sponsored by Xcel Energy, company officials tried to ease safety concerns over the pipeline, which would deliver natural gas from the company’s new metering facility in Fort Lupton to Xcel’s Cherokee Generating Plant northeast of Denver.
Area manager Preston Gibson tells the Denver Post that the pipeline will be one of the safest in the country.
The company says the pipeline would cut through Lochbuie, Adams County, Fort Lupton, Weld County, Brighton and Commerce City.
