Tyler City Council Approves Lake Tyler Drilling Proposal

The Tyler City Council has approved a natural gas pipeline at Lake Tyler, but it may come closer than some residents would like.

Antero Resources wants to build a pipeline across city-owned property on the north side of Lake Tyler, but needed city approval.  Instead of by-passing the city property, Antero offered the city more than $100,000. Plus, the city now has the right to impose tougher safety measures.

In the end, the council gave the OK.

Tyler Mayor Joey Seeber: "Because of state law, the council is powerless to prevent that pipeline from being there. So we tried to get as many concessions as possible and safety measures as possible. And that's what we did."

Lake Tyler homeowner Byron Davis hopes to challenge the pipeline construction at the state level: "Our community will protest this if it comes before the Railroad Commission. We will look into it."

Lake Tyler is a source of drinking water for the city, and Antero has pledged to keep a close eye on safety. By the way, Smith County commissioners still have to grant Antero the ability to drill beneath a county road there.
