BELLE, W.Va. (AP) — A project to remove four 1,000-foot-long pipelines from a hillside overlooking DuPont's plant in Belle has been delayed.

Plant officials say they decided to find a safer way to remove the portion of the line closest to the top of the hill.

Plant Manager Jim O'Connor said the project is about two-thirds complete but part of the pipeline remains firmly anchored on land that is severely sloped.

The Charleston Daily Mail reports ( that work is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

The newspaper reports that the pipeline was opened in 1930 as a way to save energy during the production of ammonia. It was shut down in the 1950s.
