BULLITT COUNTY, Ky. (WAVE) - Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest is fighting back against a proposed natural gas pipeline.

Bernheim has filed a formal complaint against LG&E over a proposed project in Bullitt County.

Court documents show LG&E has 85 percent of the easements needed, or nine of the proposed 12 miles, but Bernheim isn’t giving in.

Last month, LG&E sent the forest a letter threatening to condemn the property through eminent domain.

The complaint alleges Bernheim has been denied due process and claims LG&E did not get proper regulatory certificates.
