On Monday April 30th Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection will hold a public hearing on Sunoco’s Mariner East 2 pipeline. The hearing will address plans to change the construction methods on two sites in Chester County.
The topic of this hearing is about a construction alteration that was submitted many months ago. The slow response of this simple permit change is just the latest example of unnecessary delays put upon much needed infrastructure upgrades in Pennsylvania. Residents deserve to receive the full benefits of the Marcellus and Utica Shale production that is booming in the state, but regulatory red tape continues to stand in the way.
We urge you to come out and support the energy industry in Pennsylvania. Without approval of these permits the continued economic investment from Mariner East is being put on hold.
It is our responsibility to ensure that Pennsylvania sees the full economic potential that energy infrastructure will bring to the community. Delay of this project must be stopped and we need your help.
The hearing will be held Monday, April 30th from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at E.N. Peirce Middle School, 1314 Burke Road, West Chester.
Those who would like to speak have up to 3 minutes to present their support. DEP asks all those who’d like to speak to pre-register by contacting Virginia Cain, Community Relations Coordinator at 484-250-5808 or [email protected].
If you cannot make the hearing, but believe that energy infrastructure is important to ensure the safe delivery of homegrown energy resources, please consider submitting comments to the DEP.
