Tom Callan, KSL Newsradio From Farmington to Fruit Heights, a Rocky Mountain pipeline is changing the face of southern Davis County.

Some residents thought the pipeline would pump natural gas, but it is crude oil out of Wyoming along Highway 89 down to a North Salt Lake refinery. "If it's helping the state here at all, or gonna help lower oil prices, that's great," one man said.

Just up the road, another man will make some money planting the shrubs to decorate the highway when the pipeline is finished. "Native service berries, native mountain-mahoganies," he listed, to name a few.

Others are not so thrilled. One woman complained about having to move her greenhouse and water lines.
