Landowners seek dismissal of Summit Carbon Solutions' pipeline

An Iowa landowner is trying to get a proposed carbon capture pipeline project halted.

On Wednesday, lawyers for George Cummins filed a motion to dismiss Summit Carbon Solutions' application to install a pipeline to transport carbon dioxide within the state of Iowa.

Cummins owns land near Charles City in Floyd County.

The petition says that the Iowa Utilities Board only has the ability to approve or deny "liquified" carbon dioxide and Summit intends to transport "supercritical" carbon dioxide.

Some Iowa landowners are upset that a final hearing deciding whether or not Summit's pipeline project will be approved has been set in August. They previously believed the hearing would take place either later in the year or early next year.

Other landowners are calling on the Iowa Utilities Board to delay the hearing.
