West Memphis -

(WMC-TV) - Concerned Mid-South residents will be meeting to discuss a new, controversial pipeline.

According to advocate, Charles Williams, the proposed pipeline will affect natives in Tennessee and Arkansas. Specifically, people in Crittenden and Mississippi counties, as well as those north of Memphis, are expected to impacted by the Bluegrass Pipeline.

In a letter sent to Action News 5, Williams questioned:

"Who could ever want a pipeline carrying very poisonous, highly corrosive, highly explosive, radioactive material across their property or in their county?"

Williams is suggesting residents rework eminent domain law to rectify the potential problem.

The meeting will be in the West Memphis City Hall at 10:30 a.m. on November 21st.

Pipeline officials, state representatives, and potentially affected property owners are expected to attend.
