Sunoco pipeline

Sunoco pipeline

Our 50-acre farm in Salem Township, Westmoreland County, Pa., appears to be in the path of a 10- to 12-inch liquids pipeline that has been surveyed for Sunoco. The proposed line is 10 feet from a petroleum pipeline that has existed since the 1930s. The document on record signed by former owner Mary Waltour doesn’t specify width, and allows for additional pipelines, but we have yet to be approached about the details. Seismic testing has been done for drilling by Consol, which now holds the deep rights in a storage lease obtained in the 1940s by Peoples Natural Gas. We granted permission to Sunoco representatives to study the bats that live along Beaver Run Creek, which also cuts through the property. Things are certainly changing in my quiet little neck of the woods. A lot of truck traffic and construction related to the industry.


About imaleda

I like to take my camera, get in my car, and see where I end up. Could be an infamous or historic place, a cemetery, some kind of disturbance (like a pipeline) or just some place I haven't been before. Then I take pictures and write about it. Currently in the Washington, Pa., area, but open to suggestions! Connect with me through this site or below on Facebook and Patreon. Support independent journalism!
