Supervisors Approve Letter Of Intent With Inspection Firm, Prepare For Pipeline Project

The proposed oil pipeline that would cut through 18 counties in Iowa is still not a done deal. But Mahaska County is making sure it’s prepared in case the project gets the green light.

That’s why on Monday the board of supervisors unanimously agreed to a letter of intent with a Midwest engineering firm, I&S Group. County Engineer Dave Shanahan says the work involved with the pipeline project requires extensive inspection and recommended partnering up with ISG to maintain consistency across the counties.
