Delaware County Coalition Responds To Sunoco’s Mariner East 2 Pipeline Pre-Holiday Flyer

Just before the July 4 holiday weekend, Sunoco Pipeline mailed a flyer to some Chester and Delaware county residents purporting to help them “separate fact from fiction” concerning the Sunoco Mariner East 2 Pipelines, according to the Middletown Coalition for Community Safety, Delaware County.
The Coalition prepared a response to the Sunoco flyer addressing each of the six myths out lined in the flyer addressing—
-- Federal and state agency regulation of pipelines;
-- Labor support for the pipeline;
-- Sunoco is using advanced pipeline construction methods;
-- The Mariner East 2 will use 75,000 tons of domestic steel (Photo: Pipe made in Greece);
-- A local independent study on the pipeline’s safety; and
-- Sunoco is using smart inspection technology to ensure safe operation.
The Coalition said, “Sunoco has a vested interest in transporting industrial quantities of hazardous materials through densely populated areas. As a result, it simply will not provide an accurate assessment of the risk of its proposed industrial operations in terms of consequences and probability. MCCS doesn’t aim to “neutralize” anyone, only to inform by providing the complete and accurate information that Sunoco itself will not.”
