From the letter:
Dear Ms. Drake:
On behalf of Earthworks and as a resident of Washington County, Pennsylvania, thank you for the opportunity to submit comments on the Shell Pipeline Company, Falcon Ethane Pipeline Joint Permit Application for Pennsylvania Chapter 105 Water Obstruction and Encroachment Permit and US Army Corps of Engineers Section 404 Permit (hereafter “Shell permit application”).
This permit application fails to adequately address key impacts of this project to land, water and air. Moreover, as recent precedents with natural gas liquid (NGL) pipelines such as the Mariner East 2 demonstrate, such industrial projects cannot be conducted without negatively impacting the environment and endangering human health. On these grounds, we urge you to deny this permit application.
