Corbin Announces DEP Suspension of Mariner East 2 Construction Permits
HARRISBURG – Representative Becky Corbin (R-East Brandywine) today announced that the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has suspended the construction permits associated with the Mariner East 2 pipeline.

The suspension is in effect until the permittee, Sunoco Pipeline, L.P. (Sunoco), meets the requirements outlined in the order. Sunoco must cease all construction activity on the pipeline project, except for maintenance of erosion controls and limited maintenance of horizontal directional drilling equipment.

“I’m pleased to see that DEP has taken action against Sunoco to protect the health and safety of the Commonwealth’s residents and visitors,” Corbin said. “On numerous occasions, I wrote to DEP regarding concerns I had about work on the project in my legislative district. Sensitive environmental features cannot be replaced once lost. In addition, it is important that potential public safety concerns are addressed to prevent a tragedy.”

Under the order, the permits are suspended until Sunoco satisfies the terms outlined in the order, including, but not limited to:

• Addressing all impacts to private water wells in Silver Spring Township, Cumberland County.
• Identifying all in-progress or upcoming construction activities and detail the specific Chapter 102 and Chapter 105 permit under which the activity is authorized.
• Submitting a detailed Operations Plan outlining additional measures and controls to minimize inadvertent returns.

The full order can be found here.

A list of the Notices of Violations issued to Sunoco for Mariner East 2 can be found on the DEP website here

The 155th District consists of the following municipalities: West Brandywine, East Brandywine, Uwchlan, Upper Uwchlan, West Vincent, East Pikeland, Spring City, and part of Phoenixville.
