The U.S. Bureau of Land Management is considering an application for a 22-mile gas pipeline that would run from the Divide Creek area under the Colorado River to processing facilities near Parachute.

The BLM says the pipeline proposed by Bargath LLC would be bored under the Colorado River to avoid impacts to the riverbed, aquatic wildlife and the adjacent riparian ecosystem.

The BLM says boring the river has been done before in the area multiple times. The most recent was by Encana Oil & Gas USA under the Una Bridge near Parachute.
