Review of a Proposed Pipeline Construction Project in Pennsylvania

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

Stroud Water Research Center researchers reviewed a proposed pipeline project in central Pennsylvania and determined that natural gas exploration, extraction, and transport will impact aquatic habitats. However, additional baseline and long-term monitoring and precautions will be needed to evaluate and minimize those impacts. A comprehensive review of the cumulative impacts of natural gas extraction in the northeastern United States is essential.
