Duke Energy Natural Gas Pipeline Project

The proposed natural gas pipeline project will be designed to run from the northern boundary of Hamilton County near the intersection of Hamilton, Warren and Butler counties to the Norwood station or Red Bank Road area south of Erie Avenue. Duke Energy is notifying all property owners who could be impacted as well as adjacent parcel owners along the three proposed gas line routes. Only one proposed route option will be constructed if the project is approved. There are three proposed routes at this time as shown on the attached map. If the project is approved, one of these proposed routes will be selected for construction. In Madeira, the proposed alignment would be the “orange” route. This follows along the I-71 right-of-way and impacts only those residents in this immediate area.

This project requires an application for a Certificate of Environmental Compatibility and Public Need from the Ohio Power Siting Board (OPSB) in Columbus, Ohio. The process before the OPSB will include an investigation of the proposal, hearings and a decision by the board. This project is the current extension of a pipeline that was completed in 2003 that provided gas transmission from cross-country pipelines to northern Hamilton County. This pipeline extension will provide additional gas supplies farther south to the central Cincinnati area.
If you live in the vicinity of the “orange” route, over the next several months, you may see surveyors on your property taking measurements. Typically, this will take an hour or less depending on the size of your property. Duke Energy and its contractors will make an effort to contact the homeowners upon arrival to alert you of their presence. We’re expecting construction on this pipeline to start in the summer of 2017 and be complete by the fall of 2018. Although construction over the estimated 12-mile route will take approximately 16 months to complete, pipeline construction on each property typically takes between three to six weeks but may vary greatly depending on the size of the lot and other factors.

If you have questions or can’t attend the meeting, please contact Duke Energy by phone at 513.287.2130 or by email at CentCorridorPipeline@duke-energy.com. The OPSB can be reached by email at contactOPSB@puc.state.oh.us, by phone at 866.270.6772 or by mail addressed to: The Ohio Power Siting Board, 180 East Broad St., Columbus OH 43215.
