ATLANTIC SUNRISE PIPELINE EXPANSION PROJECT
Williams Energy is proposing a gas pipeline through Lancaster County that would run the proposed pipeline about 35 miles through Drumore, Conestoga, Martic, Manor, West Hempfield, Rapho and Mount Joy townships. About 350 properties would be affected. Concerned? See below for resources.
WRITE TO FERC
Write or leave a comment with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. This government agency will approve/deny the project. While it is important to voice your concerns to local and state legislature, they will not be the ones voting on this matter, however, it has been said that Congressman/woman do have the ability to sway FERC’s decision making process. FERC is supposed to have representatives at the meeting tonight, but here’s how you may contact FERC directly and OFTEN:

NEWS RELEASE – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Crop Yield Effects of Pipeline Installation
The Bradford County Conservation District and Penn State Extension are looking to study the effect that gas pipeline installation is having on crop yields. The goal is to confirm and develop protocols to follow in order to most effectively maintain, or bring the soil productivity back to, pre-construction (or better) condition. We are seeking landowners that would be willing to share their experience with these situations (both good and bad) and partner with us to potentially include their operation and property in the study. If you or anyone you know would like to speak with us about participating in this study, please give Kevin Brown a call at 570-265-5539 ext 101.
