Columbia pipeline to expand in Chester County

Columbia Gas Transmission Group submitted to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) plans to expand its pipelines in Gloucester County, NJ and Chester County, PA. According to the The Inquirer

The Chester County segment would run southward from Columbia’s Eagle Compressor Station on Fellowship Road in West Vincent Township. It would connect to the Downingtown Compressor Station on Poorhouse Road near the West Bradford Township municipal building. About 180 property owners would be affected.

The pipeline route will cross Brandywine Creek below Marsh Creek Reservoir, but Columbia plans to go under the creek using a horizontal drilling method to avoid having to trench through the waterway.
