Adelphia Gateway Pipeline Project
Adelphia Gateway officially filed an application with Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity on January 11th, 2018. The project is proposed to convert the lower (and currently deactivated) portion of the existing Interstate pipeline from oil to gas, with additional infrastructure planned in several counties. Check out this link for a map of the project.
The Adelphia Gateway project impacts communities in Northampton, Bucks, Montgomery, Chester and Delaware Counties and their FERC Application makes a request for a number of new pipeline interconnects, compressor stations and other infrastructure.
The Township has no jurisdiction over pipeline projects, as the approvals are federally controlled
Springfield Township's Code of Ordinances are now available on the Internet.
