Upper Uwchlan Twp Begs Gov. Wolf to Pull ME2 Pipe Permits

Last week Energy Transfer’s Mariner East 2X pipeline experienced an “inadvertent return”–nontoxic drilling mud coming up out of the ground where it’s not supposed to–in Chester County, PA (see Mariner East 2X Construction Causes Another Drilling Mud Spill). The Pennsylvania Dept. of Environmental Protection (DEP) immediately suspended all drilling at the site until further notice (see PA DEP Suspends ME2 Pipe Drilling at Marsh Creek State Park). The Upper Uwchlan Township Board of Supervisors sent a letter to Gov. Tom Wolf last week requesting he simply pull all of the remaining permits for the ME2 project, effectively shutting it down and preventing it from finishing–even though it’s nearly done.
