Say “NO” to Compressor Station Pollution in Carbon County

 

PennEast Pipeline Company has proposed the 114 mile-long PennEast Pipeline, in an attempt to build a part of a potential pipeline buildout for moving fracked gas from Pennsylvania. Part of that pipeline project includes the Kidder Township Compressor Station, a piece of infrastructure to pressurize and transport the gas. The station is proposed to be sited near Hickory Run State Park. Estimates from PennEast Pipeline show that this station will emit hundreds of tons of various pollutants each year and hundreds of thousands of tons of greenhouse gases each year. The compressor station will emit carcinogens, toxins that can damage the lungs, heart, and central nervous system, and smog-forming pollutants.
