    Last year, two companies announced a joint project that would convert 900 miles of the Tennessee Gas Pipeline — including 19.7 miles in Marion County — to carry up to 200,000 barrels of natural gas liquids daily.

    Marion County officials are aware of the situation, although it’s not yet clear what can be done in response.
