Here’s the letter the Suwannee County Commissioners voted 4:1 on 5 April 2016 to send to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (PDF), following the one Hamilton County already sent. Other counties in Florida and Georgia can do the same.

RE: Sabal Trail Transmission, LLC
FERC Document No. CP15-177000
Dear Mr. Evans:
The Board of County Commissioners of Suwannee County recently received the Environmental Geology report prepared by Dennis Price and dated 10/25/2015, a copy of which is attached hereto.
If you will note, the findings of Mr. Price directly contradict the representations made by Sabal Trail advocated during the permitting process.
Please consider this letter as a formal request that the Army Corps of Engineers makes a site visit inspettion to determine the actual proximity of active sinkholes and other features of the aquifer and cave systems to the proposed pipeline route,
Clyde Fleming, Vice-Chairman
Suwannee County Board
Of County Commissioners
They took the text of this letter verbatim from the Hamilton County letter dated 18 March 2016. Like Hamilton County, they attached the Dennis Price geology report.
