Adopted unanimously by Delaware County Council on June 12, 2019, calling on Gov. Tom Wolf to issue an immediate moratorium on the operations of all current and proposed Sunoco hazardous, highly volatile liquids pipelines.
"Pipeline leak would present 'extreme hazard' to county"
The Director of Emergency services for Delaware County has testified that it is not possible to keep residents safe in the event of a pipeline leak followed by ignition. The
“emergency plans” Sunoco has promoted for such a situation are unworkable.
According to a recent Citizens’ Risk Assessment, a pipeline explosion could include a blast zone up to ½ a mile or more.
Seven residents of Delaware and Chester Counties (in Southeastern Pennsylvania) have filed a lawsuit with the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) to halt construction and operations of the dangerous and controversial Mariner East pipelines. These brave residents -- the “Safety 7” -- are leading the charge to protect all of our communities, schools, and families from harm, and they need your help!
