You are absolutely correct. It is known locally as the pipeline canal. The pipeline does run between the Yscloskey plant and the Targa midstream processing metering station. The question is - did they run the pipeline along the canal because the canal was already there? Or did they dredge the canal to build the pipeline? I can find nothing online regarding the creation of the canal.
But based on other reading, I suspect what we see here is a drainage canal. I don't know what came first - the drainage canal and then the pipeline opportunistically took advantage of the canal, or the pipeline was built and then the pipeline canal was widened for drainage purposes. Clearly the canal is much too large to have been built just for the pipeline.
The only question remaining is - was there an ancient canal that was used for the pipeline and also widened for drainage? Still, I think you are correct. This particular canal cannot be used to support John Jensen's theory.
Thank you for your research!
