On July 25th the KY Student Environmental Coalition broke the news of survey markers appearing at the Kentucky State University Research and Demonstration Farm. As a result of that story the University's President, Dr. Mary Sias released a statement on August 2nd stating that the survey completed by the Bluegrass Pipeline companies, Boardwalk and Williams, was done without the permission of the University or Board of Trustees. To date there has been no investigation by the state into these illegal surveys on publicly owned lands.
We want to ask that the Attorney General investigate this illegal survey and the survey's done without permission on privately owned properties and hold these companies responsible for trespassing. If an individual had entered said property and placed survey markers through the university's important research plots they would be held legally responsible, we expect that the companies also be held accountable for their actions. The Williams and Boardwalk companies are not above the law.
