On August 8, 2017 the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Environmental Hearing Board issued a Stipulated Order related to the Sunoco Mariner East Pipeline Project. This order requires Sunoco to undertake additional subsurface testing in advance of Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) operations, provide a report on the testing results to all property owners with private water wells within 450 feet of the proposed pipeline, and offer to perform testing of those wells before, during and after the start or re-start of HDD operations (see paragraphs 7 and 8).
Note: For reference purposes, the segment of the two proposed pipelines that is located in Westtown, is noted in Exhibit 2 as Item 19, Spread 6, Chester Road, PADEP Permit HDD#PA-CH-0421.0000-RD (20” & 16”).
The Township is in the process of updating its Comprehensive Plan which will guide important policies and decisions over a 10-20 year planning horizon. There will be an Open House on October 11th from 6 to 8 PM at the Rustin High School cafeteria to allow for further public involvement in the planning process. Please plan to attend and provide your feedback!
