Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline
Would cut through the Back Mountain region of Luzerne County, PA on it's way to Cove Point and Sabine Pass Export terminals. The Atlantic Sunrise Project is a Williams Energy Partners project. ASP will consist of compression and looping of the Transco Leidy Line in Pennsylvania along with a greenfield pipeline segment, referred to as the Central Penn Line, connecting the northeastern Marcellus producing region to the Transco mainline near Station 195 in southeastern Pennsylvania. Additional existing Transco facilities are being added or modified to allow gas to flow bi-directionally.
Attached are some photos of monitoring and community watchdogging underway at the Transco Williams Atlantic Sunrise gas pipeline. DRN has trained over 50 volunteers to document construction conditions over the last few months. These pictures were taken in the vicinity of a trout stream located in Schuylkill County after the landowner called us with concerns and complaints.
DRN continues to do periodic file reviews to check enforcement happening along some areas of the route.
