The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) announced it will hold a public hearing to receive comments on two permit modification applications submitted by Sunoco, LP for its Mariner East II pipeline. Both requests are for sites in West Whiteland Township.
Sunoco’s proposal to change the methodology from Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) to conventional bore for one drill site, and from HDD to a combination of conventional bore, open trench, and HDD for the other drill, would both be considered requests for major permit modifications that require approval from DEP, after consideration of public comments.
DEP has also extended the comment period from April 21, 2018 until May 11, 2018. Full copies of the application for proposed modifications are available for review on DEP’s Mariner East II webpage: http://www.dep.pa.gov/Business/ProgramIntegration/Pennsylvania-Pipeline-Portal/Pages/Mariner-East-II.aspx.
Comments on the applications can be emailed or postal mailed to:

WHEN: Monday, April 30th from 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM
