PUC Approves Resolution Of Mariner East 2 Pipeline Valve Dispute In Chester County

The Public Utility Commission Thursday approved a motion to resolve a complaint concerning construction or location of a pipeline valve station for Sunoco’s Mariner East 2 Pipeline project filed by West Goshen Township, Chester County.
The Commission voted 5-0 to approve a motion by Commissioner David W. Sweet, adopting a Recommended Decision issued by Administrative Law Judge Elizabeth Barnes, following extensive review of this case.
The complaint related to proposed construction of a pipeline valve station outside a defined area in the township and alleged that Sunoco has violated an earlier agreement reached between Sunoco, West Goshen Township and Concerned Citizens of West Goshen Township.         
Under the terms of the Recommended Decision approved today:
-- Sunoco is enjoined from constructing or locating a valve or related facilities in West Goshen Township, except for a designated use area, without first consulting with and obtaining the express written consent of West Goshen Township.
-- Sunoco shall provide engineering documents and plans to experts for West Goshen Township for safety reviews, including plans to eliminate a valve in the township and automate a valve approximately 2.5 miles from the township.
-- Sunoco shall file an affidavit attesting to the fact that it has installed remotely operated or automatic valves in proximity to West Goshen Township.
