The PennEast Pipeline is a proposed 120.2 mile natural gas pipeline, designed to deliver natural gas across two states. The pipeline will begin at two existing interconnects of pipeline and deliver natural gas from Luzerne County, Pennsylvania to Mercer County, New Jersey.
The Philadelphia District of the US Army Corps of Engineers released public notice in September soliciting public comments regarding the locations where the pipeline will cross bodies of water or wetlands.
According to a release, the PennEast project is under the jurisdiction of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) which issued a Final Environmental Impact Study (FEIS) on April 10, 2017 for the PennEast project. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is a cooperating agency on that document.
Public comments are due by Oct. 14, 2017 and can be sent to Penneast-Comments@usace.army.mil.
