Adelphia Gateway, LLC is proposing a project to repurpose an existing pipeline in Southeastern Pennsylvania from oil to natural gas. This project, subject to review by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), also requires approvals and permits from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). This web page has been created to house and share materials and updates from DEP.
PA DEP reviewed and approved two plan approval applications for the construction and operation of two new natural gas compressor stations. Air quality plan approvals are intended to address air pollution sources and applicable control devices. After a thorough and complete review of the application, DEP generates a plan approval that contains specific conditions, including monitoring and recordkeeping, that will ensure the construction and operation are conducted in compliance with applicable rules and regulations.
DEP accepted public comments on its two draft plan approvals from
November 3, 2018, until December 14, 2018. All comments received during the comment period were reviewed and responded to in the comment response documents above.
DEP also held two public hearings to receive comments. The hearings were held on Tuesday, December 4, 2018, from 7 PM – 9 PM at the following locations:
- Lower Chichester Township Municipal Building, 1410 Market Street, Linwood, PA 19061
- West Rockhill Elementary School- cafeteria, 1000 Washington Ave, Sellersville, PA 18960
Copies of the hearing transcripts are available above.
Construction and operation of these compressor stations cannot begin until all necessary local, state and federal approvals are received.
For this project, DEP is currently reviewing two separate
GP-11 permit applicationswith two associated erosion and sediment control plans and one associated
GP-08 permits are issued for the construction, operation, and maintenance of temporary road crossings across regulated waters of this Commonwealth, including wetlands, where no practicable alternatives exist.
GP-11 permits are issued for the maintenance, testing, repair, rehabilitation or replacement of water obstructions and encroachments. Activities conducted under this General Permit which involve an earth disturbance must be done in compliance with Chapter 102 of the Department's Rules and Regulations (relating to Erosion Control). The Erosion and Sediment Control Plan must be available at the site at all times, and all Best Management Practices on the plan must be implemented and maintained prior to, during and after construction.
