Kinder Morgan alleges that the economy will benefit from the project: that jobs will be created and that it will be paying taxes in the communities through which the pipeline will run. However, any jobs that might be created will be temporary, ending when the project is complete. Meanwhile, agricultural businesses across the state may actually lose money because of the pipeline, such as Clarkdale Fruit Farms in Deerfield, whose owner has said that he stands to lose 600 trees if the pipeline intrudes on his property as planned.
