LOWNDES COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

A Valdosta property owner is voicing her concerns on a proposed pipeline that would run through her property.

Carol Singletary lives in West Lowndes County and says she's not in favor of a natural gas pipeline that would run across her property. She's worried about child safety, and also has environmental concerns. She's encouraging other landowners to voice their concerns, and hopes an alternate route is chosen.      

"When you have it within 100 feet of your home, you cannot have any sense of security there. There are alternate routes that aren't being considered. So I want to get those on the table and some strong considerations given to those," said Carol Singletary.

Singletary says landowners have until April 20th to send those proposals to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. There will be hearings about the pipeline in Albany, Valdosta and Moultrie this week.
