Resources to Fight the Good Fight for Big Bend Love #NoPipeline

So, you’ve heard or want to know more about Trans-Pecos Pipeline?

The proposal that is plaguing Big Bend Country? I am no expert, but I have a few links and resources that I am rounding up here on this page. My old brain needs a little organizing.

So here’s the proposal image featured in one of the earliest blogs on the project by our local NPR station, Marfa Public Radio, 93.5 FM.

The common question I encounter is “Does it run through the State and/or National Park?” Well, here’s a close up image from Wiki-Travel that I added the dotted line that represents the pipeline proposal in reference to the parks in question.

The answer is: No, it does not run through either parks. It runs through private lands, but Not In Our Big Bend states that the pipeline is planned to be a mere 10 miles from the Big Bend Ranch State Park. Their website is a great resource that outlines details and lists concerns. They also provide a blog with great points to ponder. Below is one of the variations to their cover page for their website. It is a great depiction of the wild beauty that is Big Bend Country. cover photo

I mentioned Marfa Public Radio as the source for the initial map image. They had some great blog posts in the last few months and the titles are rather telling. I am listing them chronologically and with their links, because on their site when you search for “Trans-Pecos Pipeline” the listings are jumbled up and are on multiple pages with images. I just thought, especially for my worn eyes, this would be more helpful to reference:

Alpine is the most populous city that the Trans-Pecos Pipeline proposes to run along the north side of. The image below will lead you to the listing results for the “Trans-Pecos Pipeline.”

If you have a resource that you could share with me, I would most appreciate the insight.
Thanks for visiting and I hope it helps brings light to this issue for you.
