MIDDLETOWN RESIDENTS SEEK ENFORCEMENT OF MUNICIPAL ZONING ORDINANCES WITH RESPECT TO SUNOCO’S PROPOSED MARINER EAST PIPELINES

MIDDLETOWN TOWNSHIP, PA –May 5, 2017. Six Middletown residents on Friday filed a complaint in Delaware County Court of Common Pleas seeking enforcement of a section of The Middletown Township Code which provides in part that “in no case shall there be a distance of less than 75 feet

between a dwelling unit and a petroleum or petroleum products transmission line.”

The Code also states that such lines must be “installed in the center of the easement.”
