BOWLING GREEN, OH (WTOL) -

Environment Protection Agency officials met with Bowling Green representatives to ensure drilling for the Nexus pipeline was running as planned.

Bowling Green’s mayor, Dick Edwards, said that the project is ahead of schedule.

He also said that his ultimate priority is to maintain the quality of Bowling Green water.

“I want to make absolutely sure that the water treatment plant for the city of Bowling Green is not being threatened in any way and the quality of our water is being maintained,” Edwards said.

The Bowling Green water treatment facility is about a mile away from the Nexus pipeline drilling.

The entire project is monitored by the Ohio EPA.

Mayor Edwards said that his concerns, as well as concerns from residents and members of city council, are all being met. 

“So we hope that pattern will continue and we will continue to monitor the situation and pay close attention to the overall construction project,” Edwards said.

The project will transport natural gas from eastern Ohio to southeast Michigan.
