Marsh Creek Lake Sediment Remediation

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) announced today that it has approved Sunoco Pipeline LP’s request for a major permit amendment for restoration activities after a spill of drilling fluid near Marsh Creek State Park in Chester County. This cleanup project, which will include lake dredging, is required under the terms of a Consent Order and Agreement issued by DEP and DCNR following the August 10, 2020 release of drilling fluid that impacted a wetland, two tributaries, and Marsh Creek Lake by Sunoco. With this permit approval, the remediation can begin. Work is expected to commence in the coming weeks and continue into the summer. Residents can expect to see activity along Milford and Lakeview Roads.
