Shell Falcon Pipeline Permits Open for Comment at Department of Environmental Protection

Shell has applied to build a 97-mile Falcon pipeline to feed the Shell Petrochemical Plant in Beaver County. The pipeline will traverse 22 townships in Pennsylvania (including several in Washington County) and others in West Virginia and Ohio. The track record of other pipelines like the Mariner East 2 pipeline, for which DEP needed to halt construction because of many permit violations, means this pipeline should take all necessary steps to get public input and ensure public safety for the hundreds of homes, hiking and biking trails, waterways, and public drinking water sources it is planned to cross. Please take action and send this letter to the DEP permit reviewer Dana Drake and request a public meeting as well as a 60-day extension to the public commenting deadline.
