In preparation for testing of the 16” pipeline, Energy Transfer will be running cleaning pigs through the pipeline from Devon Drive to the Chester County Library on Oct. 28th & 29th. Air pressure pushes the pig through the line, which needs to be released once the pig completes its trip. Air will be released by the library throughout both days.
The test will be followed by dewatering and blowdown, involving more noise and pressure release, on Friday, Oct. 30th.
West Whiteland found out the venting was happening on Wednesday through calls from neighbors to 911. The Township then confirmed the venting noise is from the testing. We will keep trying to advocate for better communication from Energy Transfer but meanwhile we extend a "thank you" to the neighbors for calling attention to this work.
