Comment Period Extension for Erosion and Sediment Control Permit Modification

 The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) provides notice of request for a permit modification for the following listed Chapter 102, Erosion and Sediment Control Permit, currently under review for the Pennsylvania Pipeline Project (PPP)/Mariner East II.

NPDES
Permit No.
Applicant Name & Address Counties DEP Regional Office
ESG0500015001 Sunoco Pipeline, LP (SPLP)
535 Fritztown Road
Sinking Spring, PA 19608
Delaware and Chester Southeast Region

 This request, received October 11, 2017, is entitled Major Modification 1—East Swedesford Road—HDD S3-381. It involves a change in installation methodology for a portion of the project as a result of concerns raised by Aqua America (Aqua), the local water authority, regarding their Hillside Drive production well along East Swedesford Road. The permitted activity is located in West Whiteland Township.

 Specifically, the proposed changes include an open trench installation with five conventional bore sections and one short horizontal directional drill (HDD). The HDD will be conducted from Stream S-B79 and Lincoln Highway which is over 2,300 feet from Swedesford Road. Conventional bores will be added at Stations 15111+00 to 15112+25 (Exton Lane), Stations 15113+75 to 15117+00 (utilities avoidance), Stations 15121+00 to 15122+25 (East Swedesford Road), and Stations 15135+00 to 15137+00 (sensitive area by stream S-B81) and 15137+00 to 15141+00 (stream S-B81 and wetland WL-B71).

 Through the utilization of these alternative installation methods, SPLP proposes to avoid impacts to local resources and sensitive areas.

 The Department is aware of the significant public interest in this modification and has extended the time period for accepting written comments on this Chapter 102 permit modification request through Friday, May 11, 2018. Comments on the application can be e-mailed or sent by postal mail to the Department of Environmental Protection, Southeast Regional Office, Waterways and Wetlands Program, 2 East Main Street, Norristown, PA 19401, ra-epww-sero@pa.gov. More detailed information regarding the Chapter 102 permit modification applications (ESG0100015001) for this proposed project is available on the Department's Pipeline Portal Page online at http://files.dep.state.pa.us/ProgramIntegration/PA%20Pipeline%20Portal/MarinerEastII/EastSwedesfordRoad/East%20Swedesford%20Road% 20-%20HDD%20S3-381%20(aka%20Drill%20381).pdf.

Chapter 102 Erosion and Sediment Control Permit Modifications; Pennsylvania Pipeline
Project (PPP)/Mariner East II; Public Hearing

 The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) will hold a public hearing to receive comments from citizens on two Chapter 102 Erosion and Sediment Control Permit Modification applications currently under technical review for Pennsylvania Pipeline Project (PPP)/Mariner East II. These permit modifications are required for earth disturbance associated with the project.

 The hearing will be held on Monday, April 30, 2018, at E N Peirce Middle School, 1314 Burke Road, West Chester, PA 19830. The public hearing will begin at 6:30 p.m. and end at 9:30 p.m.

 The proposed permit modifications currently under review are identified as Major Modification 1—East Swedesford Road, HDD S3-381 and Major Modification 2—North Pottstown Pike, HDD S3-370. The modification applications request changing the installation methodology from horizontal direction drilling in these identified areas to a combination of open trenching, conventional boring and limited horizontal directional drilling. These modification requests are a result of concerns raised by a local water authority and/or further hydrogeology analysis and seismic testing. Due to the limited scope of the subject matter and time available for the hearing, commenters are asked to focus their remarks on the modifications under review, rather than topics or matters outside of the Department's jurisdiction such as general statements of project opposition or support, job creation, post-construction safety concerns or other matters not specifically pertaining to the modifications. Relevant remarks on these proposed permit modifications provided by commenters will be considered in the Department review process of the permit modification request.

 The applications can be viewed on the Department's web site at:

The Department also requests, but does not require, those providing oral remarks bring a written copy of their comments in order to aid the transcriptionist at the hearing.

 Those who wish to present testimony during the scheduled hearing are asked to register in advance by contacting the Southeast Regional Office. Registration for the hearing will be taken through to the business day prior to the hearing. Priority will be given to residents from Chester County given the geographic scope of the modification applications.
