Interstate Energy Pipeline News–12/13/17 Update
It has been brought to our attention that Adelphia Gateway LLC plans to convert the Interstate Energy Pipeline, which currently runs through East Goshen Township, to carry shale gas. More information about the project can be found through the following link to Philly.com.
The Interstate Energy Company Pipeline runs through the Township’s open space in the Wentworth development which is located by the CVS Drugstore. At their meeting on December 5th the Board of Supervisors acknowledged receipt of a letter from Adelphia Gateway regarding possible changes to their right-of-way. The Township also has recently been advised that other property owners have received similar letters.
What does all of this mean? Based on what we know, Interstate Energy is a Public Utility that that has a tariff from the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission to transport natural gas and oil in the eastern part of the state.
The following link will take you to the Chairman’s letter that appears in our Winter 2018 Newsletter. The Township will continue to monitor this matter and provide updates as required. The Board of Supervisors encourages residents to contact the Governor and State Legislature to change the state laws that govern pipelines.
