Monday, people will get the chance to make their voices heard about a proposed pipeline that would run through Cumberland and Perry counties.
The meeting is being held in Carlisle, and is aimed at giving people who live in that area more information about the pipeline that may soon be running through their backyards.
“Cumberland and Perry Pipeline Awareness” is the organization holding the meeting. According to our media partner, The Sentinel, anyone who lives in the area is welcome to come but those who own property along the route of the proposed pipeline or in the vicinity of a pump station or valve control station are particularly encouraged to attend.
The project is called “Mariner East 2” and is just one of a number of pipelines that Sunoco Logistics wants to build. The line is currently in the planning stage and would be for natural gas. Sunoco says right now they have not finalized the locations of the pump and valve stations that would accompany the pipeline, however they already have several of them in Cumberland and Perry counties as part of the “Mariner East 1” pipeline.
There will be several different presenters at Monday’s event, including representatives of Cumberland and Perry Pipeline Awareness, Pipeline Safety Coalition and the Clean Air Council. Topics being discussed will likely include natural gas liquids, pipeline safety, landowner rights and the environmental impact of projects like this one.
