Delaware River Basin Commission to Review Two Completed Pipeline Projects
February 6, 2013
The Delaware River Basin Commission has advised that it will conduct a review of two completed pipeline projects in Northeast Pennsylvania, a reversal of its prior position. DRBC Executive Director Carol Collier made the decision after the Commission decided at its December 2012 meeting that Collier should assess whether the DRBC should review the projects. The projects are interstate pipelines built by Columbia Gas Transmission and Tennessee Gas Pipeline Co. While the DRBC does not review gas pipeline projects typically, the DRBC determined that review was needed in these cases because the pipelines went through the Delaware State Forest.
