On Saturday August 22nd, EDGE members marched across the Delaware River with about 400 people from across the region to protest the PennEast pipeline. The PennEast pipeline would cut through some of the region's most pristine natural areas and endanger communities across the state. And, of course, it would demand more fracked gas from Pennsylvania's shalefields.
"This pipeline, if approved by FERC, would cut a 125-foot swath of permanent devastation for 114 miles, starting in Luzerne County PA and ending in Mercer County NJ. The effects of this pipeline would be devastating environmentally. The 36 inch, 1480 psi pipeline, targets tax payer paid for open space and preserved farmland because its cheaper and easier. New rights of way also create a new "pipeline super highway" for future pipelines and the pumping and compressor stations that can accompany them. Co-location is not acceptable..." from CCAP Concerned Citizens Against the Pipeline
