Update from PA Attorney General’s Office
Attorney General Josh Shapiro announced on 10/5/21 that the Office of Attorney General’s Environmental Crimes Section has charged Energy Transfer, L.P. (Energy Transfer), the corporate successor to Sunoco Pipeline L.P., with 48 counts of environmental crimes for their conduct during the construction of the Mariner East 2 (ME2) Pipeline.
“There is a duty to protect our air and water, and when companies harm these vital resources through negligence — it is a crime,” said AG Shapiro. “By charging them, we can both seek to hold them criminally accountable and send a clear message to others about how seriously we take protecting the environment and public health.”
AG Josh Shapiro’s office would like to know if you believe your drinking water or property has been impacted by inadvertent returns caused by ME2 construction. If so, please contact their Environmental Crimes Section at 570-904-2643.
