For The Keystone XL: Now It's The Texas Wetlands

Episode 49 of "As The World Turns": In tonight's episode, TransCanada tweaks the southern pipeline plan to a avoid clash with the EPA.

Application for Keystone XL 2.01S will tweak Keystone XL 2.0S. The pipeline will now go under the wetlands rather than across the wetlands.
TransCanada submitted its new application in April, after the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency raised concerns about the effect the original plan would have on wetlands along the Texas Gulf Coast and called for a more rigorous review process. Under the new plan, the company will drill under the wetlands rather than run across them, eliminating the need for EPA involvement, said Vicki Dixon, regulatory program manager for the southwestern division of the Army Corps of Engineers.
Episode 48 of "As The World Turns" is here.
