DEP Publishes Section 401 Water Quality Certification For Revolution Pipeline In Western PA

The Department of Environmental Protection published a series of four notices in the June 5 PA Bulletin related to Section 401 Water Quality Certification for the Revolution natural gas pipeline.  (
PA Bulletin, page 3183)

The Revolution Pipeline route goes through Allegheny, Beaver, Butler and Washington counties. This certification relates to proposed restoration and on-site mitigation of aquatic resources impacted by slope failures along the pipeline route.

In January 2020, DEP fined the owners of Revolution Pipeline $30.6 million for a series of failures related to the pipeline construction that resulted in a 2018 explosion of the pipeline in Beaver County just shortly after the new pipeline started operating. Read more here.

The owners of Revolution Pipeline -- an Energy Transfer Partners subsidiary-- have been trying to fix the problems related to the pipeline’s construction since that time.
