Enviro Groups Appeal Army COE Permits for XL Pipeline to EPA

Environmental groups are appealing to EPA in an effort to reverse the Army Corps of Engineers (COE) issuance of the final three permits needed for construction of the southern leg of the Keystone XL pipeline in Oklahoma and Texas.  Unlike the northern portion which would be built across the US-Canada border and whose EIS process is consequently guided by the State Dept, the construction permits and EIA of the southern portion has been with the Army COE.  This article from the Washington Post provides background on this as well as how EPA may be appealed to on two other projects, including export of coal through the Northwest and the proposed Pebble Mine in Alaska.
