Community Information

  WOLF CARBON PROPOSED CO2 PIPELINE INFORMATION

The proposed pipeline, which would be up to 20” in diameter and pressurized to nearly 2200psi, has been initiated by ADM in Cedar Rapids and it would transport hazardous condensed (liquified) carbon dioxide from the ADM plant in Cedar Rapids through several rural farms and towns before connecting in LeClaire with another proposed pipeline from the ADM plant in Clinton. The pipeline route is attached here.  Wolf MSHub Iowa ScottCounty Overview 2107570 221121 152645

The City has concerns about this pipeline project and the impact that it would have on the health of our residents should there be a pipeline leak or disruption. We are also concerned about property values, future land development, and the potential use of eminent domain.  We have submitted a letter of opposition to the pipeline.  Our goals are to ensure that all community members are aware of this project, that all landowners within the proposed pipeline corridor have received certified letters regarding the project and their rights, that a North Scott alliance/committee is formed to resolve unanswered issues regarding medical and property liability coverage, the overall effect of pipeline on limited emergency resources and the associated costs of training for an emergency response to a rupture of the pipeline, and finally, the effects of the pipeline on farm land and animals.

 I strongly encourage our residents to investigate this project.  You may visit the IUB website at https://iub.iowa.gov/ and the pipeline project announcement is on their home page.  You will be able to view a map of the proposed pipeline route.  Objections and comments are currently able to be filed on Docket No. HLP-2022-0002.  There is a link to the filing page in the project announcement or you may call the IUB at (515) 725-7300.

Please visit the following page for more information on the potential hazard the pipeline proposes to our community. https://www.huffpost.com/entry/gassing-satartia-mississippi-co2-pipeline_n_60ddea9fe4b0ddef8b0ddc8f

 CIVIC LEAGUE CAN DROP OFF SITE

The Civic League has now set up a can donation center at the ball diamond on N. 1st St, Long Grove.   Donate your empty 5¢ redeemable cans and plastic bottles by bagging them up, and tossing the bag over the fenced-in enclosure at the ball diamond.  Proceeds benefit the Long Grove Civic League and Strawberry Festival.  In the near future, we will be looking for volunteers to participate in a ‘sorting day’ in order for us to get the cans and bottles ready for redemption.  Please contact Kristy at 563-343-9110 if your family might be willing to volunteer for a sorting day.

 RECYCLING CALENDAR REVISION

The Long Grove Recycling Calendar sent at the beginning of the year was unfortunately incorrect.  New recycling calendars are included with this month’s bill and will be available online.  Please throw your original calendar away and replace with the new calendar included with this month’s utility bill.  We sincerely apologize for the error and any inconvenience.

IMPORTANT YARD WASTE PICK UP & DROP OFF UPDATE

Unfortunately, the sewer plant/yard waste drop off site is no longer open to the public during regular operating hours. With respect to the public works limited staff, varied work schedule, and daily tasks, we are unable to monitor the site to prevent inappropriate dumping, which is creating a pest nuisance for residents near the plant, as well as, to ensure control of hazardous material disposal and public safety.  Also, the City has been informed of children entering the wastewater treatment area unsupervised, which greatly increases the risk of an accident, injury, or loss of life.  The City is exercising due diligence for the safety of all of our residents.

 

We understand that this change of access to the yard waste disposal area creates a loss of convenience for our residents who are accustomed to dropping off their yard waste at the wastewater treatment plant, but the City must put forth efforts to maintain general site safety to avoid accidents and mitigate liability.  The City of Long Grove will continue to provide yard waste pickup every Tuesday morning.  Brush and tree trimmings will be picked up if bundled and tied in manageable bundles.  Yard waste should be in yard waste bags with a sticker attached.  You may purchase stickers ($1.00) or bag and sticker ($1.50) at City Hall.
