Consultant says eastern Wisconsin gas pipeline more needs

by

TOWN OF JACKSON, WI (WTAQ) - A consultant is telling the state Department of Natural Resources repairs need to be made to the eastern Wisconsin pipeline which spilled gasoline last July.

That consultant says an inspection found nine sections of pipe were degraded where they cross the Jackson Marsh Wildlife Area.

They report suggests they need to be reinforced with a metal sleeve to eliminate the risk of another spill on the publicly-owned recreation and hunting land.

Last year’s mishap dumped an estimated 54,600 gallons of gas in the Town of Jackson.

A welded seam gave way on the pipe in a farm field.

The repair project planned for Jackson Marsh has been approved by the state.
