COAL SLURRY PIPELINES: PROGRESS AND PROBLEMS FOR NEW ONES
This report summarizes information on some of the key issues concerning coal slurry pipelines--pipelines that carry a mixture of coal and water--and whether pipeline companies need Federal eminent domain legislation to help acquire rights-of-way along proposed routes. It discusses the current status of seven proposed pipelines and points out that at least four may be built by the mid-1980's even without Federal eminent domain legislation. The report highlights some recent changes that have occurred since the Coal Pipeline Act of 1978, proposed in the 95th Congress, was defeated in July 1978.
