Description

What special challenges arise when a single linear project has the potential to impact two distinct watersheds, each with their own set of regulatory agencies? Using the PennEast Pipeline Project – a proposed 118-mile, 36-inch-diameter underground pipeline designed to deliver up to one billion cubic feet of natural gas per day – as an example, Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper Carol Parenzan, who holds an environmental engineering degree with a water focus from Penn State and has experience in subsurface utility exploration and mapping, will provide an overview of the project, show the planned route in the Susquehanna River and Delaware River watersheds, provide historical background information for the project area, outline regulatory agencies involved with project approval, and address some of the complicating factors with this specific project as it weaves its way through the two watersheds.
