On February 13, 2017 the PA DEP illegally issued the permit for construction of Mariner East 2. The Mariner East 2 pipeline would span over 300 miles across 17 counties in Pennsylvania carrying natural gas liquids: propane, butane, and ethane, which are 150 times more flammable than natural gas. The pipeline will cross many streams, wetlands, and waterways, severely impacting Pennsylvania’s watersheds.

The Gerhart family in Huntington County  is opposed to Sunoco’s attempted taking of their land and has not agreed to any settlement with the company. Not only is Sunoco lacking necessary water-crossing and erosion permits from state regulators, its claims to eminent domain are under challenge in counties across Pennsylvania. This pipeline would devastate the land the Gerhart family has preserved for decades.

Sunoco Logistics cut down three acres of trees on the Gerhart family’s property to make way for its Mariner East 2 pipeline project in the spring of 2016. However, the landowners have put up a hell of a fight against tree clearing [Read More].

Ellen and Elise Gerhart, and three other individuals were charged with impeding the tree cutting, (later dropped), and the family attorney is fighting against eminent domain condemnation in Pennsylvania’s Commonwealth Court.
