PA Attorney General Announces Free Water Testing for Residents Impacted by Mariner East Pipeline Construction
The Pennsylvania Attorney General's office has announced that, as a part of an agreement with Energy Transfer, residents impacted by Mariner East Pipeline construction can submit a request for free water testing until Friday, August 19. Here is a portion of the news release from the Attorney General:
Earlier this month, Attorney General Josh Shapiro announced that Sunoco Pipeline L.P., and ETC Northeast Pipeline LLC (ETC), both subsidiaries of Energy Transfer, L.P. (Energy Transfer), were convicted of criminal charges related to their conduct during the construction of two major pipelines in Pennsylvania. As part of the agreement, Energy Transfer will pay for independent evaluations of water quality impacts for homeowners potentially impacted by the construction of the Mariner East 2 Pipeline and in some cases, offer approved mechanisms for restoring or replacing the impacted private water supplies.
The final deadline for residents to reach out to the Office of Attorney General to apply for a free water test for their home is this coming Friday, August 19th. Any interested party should reach out to the Office at firstname.lastname@example.org. So far, over 150 Pennsylvania residents have contacted our office for their water tests. Residents interested in receiving a water test should know that there are no distance limits from the Mariner East 2 pipeline that would impact their eligibility to apply for a water test.
