Marine East Pipeline

During my Thursday outing to fish the native/wild trout streams of Tuscarora SF, I came across several work crews prepping Blue Mountain for installation of the Mariner East pipeline. The pipeline is following the path of an existing pipeline. All vegetation had been removed on both sides of Blue Mountain. I witnessed no devises which would minimize soil erosion on the south side, but could not be 100% certain since I could only see small portions of the work area from the SF roads.

given the heavy thunderstorms Thursday night and rain on Friday, I would expect a considerable amount of silt entered the South Branch of Laurel Run. I plan on checking things out tomorrow and taking some pictures.

Will the pipeline also cross the North Branch?

Yes. It will cross just before the forks merge.

Erosion and Sediment controls should be installed prior to any earth moving or brush clearing/grubbing occurs. Call DEP or county conservation district and file a complaint.

Happened to be up there Saturday afternoon as I've been keeping an eye on this for TU. From what I saw, they've surveyed and marked out the crossing of both branches of Laurel Run but have yet to do any logging/brushing to clear the way, same as it was 3-4weeks ago. The current logging activity stops at the south/east side of Laurel Run Road and they have the wetlands and sensitive stream areas marked out from the recent survey once you cross the road. Other than some pruning/light clearing by hand for the survey work and increased foot traffic, they haven't started any heavy work adjacent to the branches of the creek yet. Imagine they'll be close to getting started this week.

Creek looked fine to me given the 2" or so of rain we saw in some heavy storms Friday night. Running full but not noticeably off color either below or above the pipeline zone, same for Shaeffer Run near Fowler's Hollow to the north, though they've only roughly surveyed for that crossing at this time.

Kudos Tomi.

Thanks to you and all the TU volunteers across the state who are keeping an eye on this sort of thing.

Visited the pipeline site near Laurel Run this morning. Crews are in the process of constructing a bridge to move equipment across the stream. Runoff containment is in place.

Thanks for the info. The pipeline is going in about 1/3 of a mile south of my place.

Oh boy....bentonite seepage on the Letort, incident(s) on June 2, just now seem to be going public with it. Doesn't sound like it's in the stream proper, but in the riparian wetland.

Reads like construction has stopped for the time being at the Letort, along with a stretch up in Chester Cty where some folks wells got messed up.

I am confused. I thought they were just building a pipeline. Why are they drilling?

They are killing us in our neck of the woods too.
I am going to have to drive out there to a few locations and look around.

They do horizontal drilling to go under streams.

I saw them drill under Bald Eagle Creek between Milesburg and the I80 bridge for a gas line.

Some springs that go into Bald Eagle Creek further down ran cloudy for several days when they were doing this, then cleared up.

How do you think they get the pipeline under rivers and larger creeks?

I did always wonder thinking they did some kind of ditching but obviously that would be totally impractical on the larger water bodies. Also, when I heard the chemicals I just thought gas drilling because that is what it is what I always associated it with.

I feel pretty dumb about posting that but you can only imagine the average person's confusion. None of the articles I read explained why drilling was done or why chemicals were used.

I guess they use these chemicals when they drill wells? If so what prevents them from contaminating the aquifers?
