Sunoco Pipeline Penalties Could Benefit Lebanon County Streams

On April 17, the PA DEP announced the creation of a new grant program funded by the $12.6 million penalty imposed on Sunoco Logistics related to the construction of the Mariner East 2 pipeline. Grants will be awarded for projects that reduce or minimize pollution and protect clean water in the 85 municipalities along the length of the pipeline corridor.

The Sunoco Penalty Grant opportunity generated nine proposals submitted by five non-profit entities to improve the water quality in the Quittapahilla watershed. Three proposals were submitted by the Quittapahilla Watershed Association in partnership with the Lebanon Valley Conservancy (TLVC), with the crucial help of Doc Fritchey TU.
