PIPELINES & NATURAL GAS FRACKING

Pipelines & Natural Gas Fracking

In 2015, the EAC was successful in having the Township’s Board of Supervisors adopt a resolution against pipelines in our Township.  Although the Penn East Pipeline, which is proposed to transport fracked gas from upstate Pennsylvania to New Jersey and beyond, is not currently proposed to come through Springfield Township, this resolution supports our neighboring communities and also sets out our objections to any other future pipeline proposals. 

In January 2018, the Board of Supervisors adopted a Resolution (2018-2) to call upon the Delaware River Basin Commission to ban hydraulic fracturing (fracking) in the Delaware River Basin.
