Supporting Kentucky Communities Impacted by
Gas Pipelines and Extreme Oil and Gas Extraction
Kentucky is the crossroads for several existing and proposed pipeline routes for natural gas, natural gas liquids, and related petro byproducts. These projects can potentially cut through dozens of counties throughout city and rural areas in Kentucky, creating concerns with safety, environmental impacts to both public and private land, land rights and split estate concerns, and issues of environmental justice to low-income communities.
The Kentucky Conservation Foundation has provided support work for the recent Pipelines and Fracking Conference held in Lexington by over twenty nonprofit groups. KCF continues to provide support work for frontline communities impacted by extreme extraction.
