COMMUNITY EVENTS:

 

 

 

The PennEast Pipeline Project

  • PennEast Pipeline Company has developed an interactive mapping tool to assist landowners, neighbors and community leaders on the proposed route of the PennEast Pipeline. The map, which is available on our website at www.penneastpipeline.com, allows users to type their address into the search box to determine the general proximity of the proposed pipeline route to their property.
    • October 8, 2014 – Township Staff met with representatives for the Proposed Pipeline Project. Click here to review the packet of information received at that meeting.
    • PennEast’s website states, “Since we are in the very first stage of a multi-year process, we cannot answer all of the questions at this time. The best way to receive factual information about the project is to visit the project website at www.penneastpipeline.com. The website is updated on a regular basis and many of your questions are addressed in the FAQ tab. If you have additional questions send an electronic message to answers@penneastpipeline.com or call us toll-free at 1-844-347-7119. We will attempt to respond within 24 hours, Monday through Friday and 48 hours on weekends and holidays.”
    • PennEast’s website indicates that “Open houses tentatively will be scheduled for early November. The open houses are not meetings. They are designed to provide attendees an opportunity to visit different stations to talk with experts in the fields of pipeline safety, environment, construction, operations, and land. Attendees may choose to visit whichever station is of most interest and talk with the respective project leads. PennEast will announce the dates and locations in newspaper advertisements, on the project website and in fliers at area libraries.
