Sunoco is planning to drill under Boot Road between Route 202 and the Boot Road/Ship Road split. The deadline for public comments was December 31, but it has now been extended.
Bernie Greenberg forwarded me the following information from State Representative Carolyn Comitta:
I asked DEP to extend the comment period. Following is their reply: “DEP discussed and can accept public comment until Jan 5th and still keep to their court ordered deadline for review of SUNOCO’s HDD request.” The Jan 5th deadline is not a formal extension, but gives a few extra days beyond the holidays for people to comment.
Thanks, Representative Comitta, and thanks Bernie!
If you haven’t commented yet, do it now. Details about Sunoco’s plan and some of the issues it raises are here:
The DEP needs to hear from you!
