Pennsylvania State Senator Andy Dinniman has filed a formal legal complaint and a petition for interim emergency relief with the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission to halt construction on two natural gas pipelines in West Whiteland Township, according to StateImpact.
Alleging it poses a serious threat to public safety, Dinniman wants construction on the Mariner East pipeline project to cease. It includes three parallel natural gas liquids lines — the Mariner East 1, the Mariner East 2, and the Mariner East 2X.
Service on the Mariner East 1 line was halted earlier this spring. Dinniman’s complaint and petition relate to the second two lines — the Mariner East 2 and 2X.
