Pennsylvania, environmentalists settle pipeline dispute

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) -- Pennsylvania environmental regulators and groups that oppose the construction of a $2.5 billion pipeline across southern Pennsylvania have settled their dispute over the permits that were issued for the project.

The Clean Air Council, Delaware Riverkeeper Network and Mountain Watershed Association had challenged 20 permits issued by the Department of Environmental Protection for Sunoco Pipeline's Mariner East 2 pipeline. The environmental groups called them incomplete and legally flawed.

Sunoco has since nearly completed work on the 350-mile-long (563 kilometer), 20-inch (50-centimeter) diameter Mariner East 2 pipeline to carry propane, butane and ethane from western Pennsylvania to a terminal near Philadelphia.

The settlement does not impact any of the permits, but requires DEP to put into place additional safeguards for future pipeline projects.

Wow, isn't that special. The cow is out of the barn and the powers that be are going to look at better locks. Whoopee!

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

I wonder if any of those protesting the pipeline heat with natural gas or have natural gas generated electricity?
