GREEN, Ohio -- A tense and uneasy week is ahead when it comes to a natural gas pipeline running through the area.

By Wednesday, we could find out whether the federal government gives the NEXUS project permission to run from Canada through some densely populated communities in Northeast Ohio.

It’s been a contentious two-and-a-half-year battle that comes with some last-minute drama.

Throughout the next several days, about 50 property owners in Summit County anticipate unannounced visits from NEXUS surveyors.

Residents in Green and New Franklin are bracing to defend their properties against the 255-mile natural gas pipeline possibly running through their yards.

We reached out to Spectra Energy for what they say they're doing this week on these properties. We're still waiting to hear back.

The company’s Web site says the project will help meet growing demand for more affordable and cleaner natural gas.
