Bayou Bridge Pipeline

Tell Louisiana Gov. John Edwards to halt construction of the Bayou Bridge Pipeline until a full Environmental Impact Study of the project can be conducted.

Protecting the Bayou from ETP

If approved, the Bayou Bridge Pipeline will run though 11 parishes and cross around 600 acres of wetlands and 700 bodies of water, including wells that reportedly provide drinking water for some 300,000 families.

We believe that landowners and indigenous tribes have the right to determine what happens to their land. But Energy Transfer Partners (ETP), a giant oil company based in Texas, has been consistently violating those rights in their drive to build new oil and gas pipelines. And along the way, communities have suffered.
