POSTPONED Gas Line Safety Planning and New Techniques in Development Regulation POSTPONED

Co-sponsored with the Pennsylvania League of Women Voters - Citizen Education Fund

Thursday, Dec.11, 7 p.m.
Roessner Hall, Room TBD, Albright College

The purpose of this workshop is to highlight the existing and potential new pipelines being proposed in Berks County.

Pipelines are a reality in this region of the Commonwealth as industry develops methods to deliver the new sources of natural gas found in northeastern Pennsylvania. The project is funded through a grant awarded to the Pennsylvania State League of Women Voters - Citizen Education Fund by the U.S. Department of Transportation, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), Technical Assistance Grant Pennsylvania Pipelines: Providing an Ounce of Prevention. The 200+ Pipelines and Informed Planning Alliance guidelines will be reviewed and a working document will be developed to be shared with municipalities throughout Berks, Bucks, Lehigh and Northampton counties. This document will reference the PIPA document, providing a simplified process for municipalities to follow.
