(Color coding may differ from one issue to the next.)
(Note if a project spans multiple municipalities -- e.g. a pipeline -- it will show in the count for each municipality.)

The number of facilities also follows the municipality name in brackets.

Municipality counts are based on the way the permit is listed by DEP; DEP has been known to get a municipality wrong.

Locations in brackets identify a precise location used to locate a surrogate for the actual site being permitted (e.g. locating a well pad or pipeline by the known location of a well.) Locations labeled beginning with "~" and ending in "[?]" are approximate and speculative based on inferences using on-line property and lease records. These are marked in the text as "[Approximate, Speculative]

[45 Pa.B. 7064]
[Saturday, December 12, 2015]

 The public comment period for the Governor's Pipeline Infrastructure Task Force Draft Final Report (Report) is extended by 15 days. The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) will now be accepting comments through Tuesday, December 29, 2015.

 On July 7, 2015, Governor Tom Wolf announced the 48 members of the Pipeline Infrastructure Task Force (Task Force), informed by 12 different workgroups. The workgroups met over the course of 3 months and developed recommendations for pipeline development with a focus on:

  Agriculture

  Conservation and Natural Resources

  County Government

  Emergency Preparedness

  Environmental Protection

  Historical/Cultural/Tribal Impacts

  Local Government

  Natural Gas End Use

  Pipeline Safety and Integrity

  Public Participation

  Siting and Routing

  Workforce and Economic Development

 The recommendations developed by the workgroups will be reported to the Task Force for additional discussion, consideration and assimilation into the Report that will be presented to Governor Tom Wolf in February 2016.

A. Public Comments

 The Department is accepting comments on the Report through December 29, 2015.

 Comments submitted by facsimile will not be accepted. Comments, including comments submitted by e-mail, must include the originator's name and address. Commentators are encouraged to submit comments using the Department's online eComment tool at www.ahs.dep.pa.gov/eComment. Written comments should be submitted to the Department of Environmental Protection, Policy Office, Rachel Carson State Office Building, P. O. Box 2063, Harrisburg, PA 17105-2063, ecomment@pa.gov.

B. Contact

 Questions concerning the comment period and report can be directed to the Task Force at RA-EPPITF@pa.gov. The draft report is available on the Department's web site at www.dep.pa.gov (DEP Keyword: Pipeline Infrastructure Task Force).

 Persons in need of accommodations as provided for in the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 should contact the Department at (717) 783-8727 or through the Pennsylvania AT&T Relay Service at (800) 654-5984 (TDD users), or (800) 654-5988 (voice users) to discuss how the Department may accommodate their needs.

Incident report to PHMSA, (Pipeline and Hazardous Material Safety Agency):

Approximate Location: Latitude: 39.92, Longitude: -79.82327

NPMS metadata for the suspected pipeline:

OPERATOR ID: 19235
OPERATOR NAME: TEXAS EASTERN TRANSMISSION LP (SPECTRA ENERGY CORP)
SYSTEM NAME: WAYN-UNIO
COMMODITY CATEGORY: Natural Gas
COMMODITY DESCRIPTION: NATURAL GAS
INTERSTATE DESIGNATION: Y
PIPELINE STATUS CODE: In Service
GENERAL PERSON TO CONTACT: Dwayne Teschendorf(Principal Engineer)
GENERAL ENTITY TO CONTACT
GENERAL ADDRESS: 5400 Westheimer Ct,Null, Houston TX 77056
GENERAL PHONE/FAX/EMAIL: Phone: (713) 627-5573 Null Fax: Null Email: none

Notes:

Please find two attachments. The first attachment shows an NPMS screen
shot. The small dot inside the red circle gives the *approximate* location
of the suspected problem; the second attachment shows a Google Maps
satellite image, and again the suspected problem is located approximately
in the red circle.

The problem is *two sinkholes*, one of which is exposing a pipeline, which
I believe is identified above. I have not been to the site myself, but have
spoken by phone to a nearby resident who has; he reports that the sinkholes
are approximately 50 feet south of New Salem Road, "between the road and
the swamp". "Someone" is apparently aware of the problem, since a warning
fence has been placed around the sinkholes. The nearby resident believes
the gas in the pipeline has been turned off, so there is no imminent
emergency. However the concern is obviously that the sinkholes could grow.
Our area has been subject to extensive coal mining, and in many places
older residents can recall hearing stories from their older family memebers
about undocumented coal mines. This may or may not have anything to do with
the sinkholes.

In the satellite image, the facility in the lower left corner is Shamrock
Compressor Station, which is owned and operated by Laurel Mountain
Midstream. Please note that this compressor station, while as large (in
horsepower) as some compressor stations along transmission lines, is *NOT*
a FERC-regulated facility; it serves as a major hub for gathering lines in
this area of the Marcellus Shale.

Notes:

The well PIEDMONT COAL UW-109 shown in an inspection report above is listed in DEP records as South Union Twp, but the latitude and longitude listed in DEP records are clearly in Luzerne Twp. I am guessing the twp listing is correct and the lat/long are bogus. Because of this problem, this entry is not mapped.

The leaks reported for Dominion wells above are in conventional wells, but this is a reminder that many of the problems we have been concerned about regarding Marcellus Shale are also problems of conventional wells that perhaps we didn't pay proper attention to until the onset of Marcellus Shale drilling. Any kind of leak is a concern from the point of view of climate change, since methane is a potent greenhouse gas.

Sinkholes have opened up near Shamrock Compressor Station, at least one of which is exposing an interstate Texas Eastern natural gas transmission line. Interstate transmission lines are regulated federally, by PHMSA, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Agency. PHMSA maintains a web site for mapping federally regulated pipelines called NPMS, National Pipeline Mapping System. The NPMS map viewer is available here:

<https://www.npms.phmsa.dot.gov/PublicViewer/composite.jsf>

(Note: If you drill down far enough on the NPMS viewer, the pipelines disappear from the map. High-detail pipeline maps are considered security-related restricted information.) The NPMS screen shot referred to in the incident report above is shown as the "More Maps" entry far right, above.

------------------------

DEP defines an environmental justice area as "any census tract where 20 percent or more individuals live in poverty, and/or 30 percent or more of the population is minority". (See:
<http://www.portal.state.pa.us/portal/server.pt/community/pa_environmental_justice_areas/20991>
<http://www.portal.state.pa.us/portal/server.pt/community/dep_enhanced_public_participation_policy/20988>
). There are supposed to be enhanced public participation requirements for permits in environmental justice areas, but news of this actually ever happening is scarce. In Fayette County, the entirety of Springhill, Nicholson, German, and Georges Townships are environmental justice areas, as well as a large part of Dunbar Township. DEP's policy document on public participation guidelines for environmental justice areas is located here:
<http://www.elibrary.dep.state.pa.us/dsweb/Get/Version-48671/012-0501-002.pdf>

eNOTICE records are likely to list the same permit multiple times, as that permit moves through the DEP process.

Oil & Gas Wells designated with a site a number and the letter H typically designate horizontal wells.

Disclaimers:

This compilation from the above sources was done by hand using copy and paste and may omit relevant permits.

Does not currently include water supply permits. Does not include landfill permits even though many such are for Marcellus Shale waste. (It is not possible at this time to distinguish which landfill permits are for Marcellus Shale waste and which are not without doing File Review for each permit.)

Erosion & Sedimentation permit records do not currently include latitude and longitude. Where I am publishing latitude and longitude with E&S permits it is by inferring an associated well permit and using published latitude and longitude for the well. It is possible I may be inferring the wrong well site.

Municipalities are shown from eFACTS records on the DEP web site. The DEP has been known to list a municipality incorrectly.
