TransCanada proposes to construct a pipeline to transport crude oil from the tar sand mines in Canada to New Orleans. This pipeline would pass through the Sand Hills and Niobrara River Valley of Nebraska – over the Ogallala Aquifer -one of the world’s largest supplies of groundwater.
The Sierra Club and its Nebraska Chapter vehemently oppose the construction of this pipeline and are acting to defeat its construction. This page will provide links to resources on this topic and list upcoming actions by Sierra Club or its conservation allies.
