Summit Carbon Drills On Land Of Farmer Who Allegedly Threatened Surveyors

(Aberdeen, SD) — Summit Carbon is under fire after drilling on the land of a farm owner and damaging his crops. Farmer Jared Bossly is a Brown County farmer and has strong opposition to the pipeline. The company accused of threatening to kill two contractors who visited his property to conduct surveys on May 3rd, according to Summit Carbon, but none of the charges stuck in court. Representative Jon Hansen shared two photos on Twitter that show Summit Carbon surveyors using a geotechnical drilling rig to drill on farmland around the area of the company’s proposed pipeline on Tuesday. A recent ruling made by a Brown County judge allows Summit Carbon Solutions to survey private land without permission from landowners.
