DEP Suspends Mariner East 2 Construction Permits



Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has issued an order suspending the construction permits associated with the Mariner East 2 pipeline until the permittee, Sunoco Pipeline, L.P. (Sunoco) meets the requirements outlined in the order. Sunoco must cease all construction activity on the pipeline project, except for maintenance of erosion controls and limited maintenance of horizontal directional drilling equipment.

“Until Sunoco can demonstrate that the permit conditions can and will be followed, DEP has no alternative but to suspend the permits,” said DEP Secretary Patrick McDonnell. “We are living up to our promise to hold this project accountable to the strong protections in the permits.”

Under the order, all activities permitted under Chapter 102 and Chapter 105 of the PA Code must immediately cease. The permits will be suspended until Sunoco satisfies the terms outlined in the order, including, but not limited to:

• Address all impacts to private water wells in Silver Spring Township, Cumberland County
• Identify all in-progress or upcoming construction activities and detail the specific Chapter 102 and Chapter 105 permit under which the activity is authorized
• Submit a detailed Operations Plan outlining additional measures and controls to minimize inadvertent returns

The full order can be found here: http://files.dep.state.pa.us/Program...ties010318.pdf

A list of the Notices of Violations issued to Sunoco for Mariner East 2 can be found on the DEP website: Mariner East II
