The West Whiteland Township Board of Supervisors filed a petition to intervene in support of state Senator Andy Dinniman’s complaint against Sunoco Mariner East pipeline project before the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission. In a unanimous vote, the West Whiteland Board of Supervisors recently decided to intervene in the matter, which means they have formally entered into the legal process. Dinniman, who continues to be a leading and vocal critic of the pipeline project, said potential safety issues, concerns, and impacts related to Mariner East don’t to be going away anytime soon. Earlier this spring. Dinniman brought a complaint and emergency petition to the PUC, calling for a halt of operation of the 87-year-old ME1 pipeline and construction of the ME2 and ME2x pipelines in West Whiteland Township due to public safety concerns. In May, PUC Administrative Law Judge Elizabeth H. Barnes sided with Dinniman, agreeing that the ongoing construction of the problem-riddled pipeline project in a densely populated, high-consequence area constitutes an “emergency situation which presents a clear and present danger to life or property.”
