A Pipeline Near You: How might the proposed Falcon Ethane Pipeline affect nearby residents, businesses, and our expectations of data transparency?
February 16, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm EST
Do you live along the proposed route of the Falcon ethane pipeline, or do you suspect you might live nearby? Are you curious about the implications of building a major pipeline in Ohio, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania?
FracTracker recently released a public environmental impact assessment (EIA) of the Falcon Pipeline being proposed to feed Shell’s cracker in Western PA – including detailed interactive maps.
Not only does the Falcon Public EIA Project highlight the Falcon pipeline’s likely impacts to waterways, potential blast zones, ecological footprint, and proximity to hazardous industrial areas – it represents the first time public stakeholders have been given such a significant amount of time and detail to investigate a proposed pipeline.
