The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission says the company building the Rover and Nexus natural gas pipelines across northern Ohio may resume drilling under the Tuscarawas River, where mud and fluid has been spilled twice in the last two years.

The city council in the Summit County town of Green last night approved a settlement with developers of the Nexus natural gas pipeline.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has approved construction of the Nexus natural gas pipeline that's drawn intense opposition from some Ohio residents concerned about safety and property rights.

Officials in Green, Ohio plan to file a lawsuit to stop construction of a high-pressure natural gas pipeline, citing economic and environmental damage.

Opponents of the NEXUS natural gas pipeline planned for northern Ohio say they're hoping the existence of a threatened bat species will at least delay the 2 billion dollar project.
