CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A federal agency has determined that a proposal to build a natural gas pipeline across Todd County, Kentucky, that would serve Clarksville, Tennessee, would not adversely affect area landowners or the environment.

According to The Leaf-Chronicle, the finding was contained in the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's environmental assessment of the Clarksville Natural Gas Interconnect Pipeline Project.

The report released earlier this month says with "appropriate mitigating measures" the project would not have a significant adverse effect.

Kentucky landowners have opposed the project saying it could harm the environment and they will reap no benefit from it.

The proposed $6 million line would serve only as a backup source of natural gas, so other communities aren't allowed to tap in.
