Urge Governor Wolf to Halt the Mariner East II Pipeline

from Clean Air Council, December 22nd, 2017

The construction of the Mariner East 2 pipeline has caused over 100 drilling-fluid spills and has contaminated drinking water supplies, streams, and wetlands in many locations across Pennsylvania. Senator Dinniman has called on Governor Wolf to halt construction of the pipeline until residents’ concerns are addressed. Dinniman’s call for a halt was joined by Senator Rafferty and Representatives Milne, Comitta, and Krueger-Braneky, with calls from Congressman Meehan and Representative Corbin for a thorough re-evaluation of the project.
