You have only until Friday, August 19, to contact the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s office to sign up for free water testing if you think Mariner East work has affected your water supply.
Energy Transfer (ET) entered a “no contest” plea as part of a plea deal to settle environmental-crimes charges filed by the AG. As part of the deal, ET will test the water of any resident who “believes their drinking water was impacted by the construction of the Mariner East 2 pipeline”.
ET is required to establish a fund of $10 million, managed by the AG’s office, for “water quality improvement projects” to correct problems that are found.
You need to register by August 19 to get your water tested. Here are your options for contacting the AG’s office:
- Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Phone: 570-904-2643
- Mail: Environmental Crimes Section, 16th Floor, Strawberry Square, Harrisburg, PA 17120
