Major pipeline projects resulting from the boom in shale gas extraction have had a significant
impact on communities in their path. The need for a central information clearinghouse
between pipeline operators, residents, and local municipalities became clear as these projects
were proposed in Chester County. The Chester County Pipeline Information Center (PIC)
was created to address pipeline communication and project concerns. Municipalities can
also address pipeline safety at the local level through best planning practices and ordinance
regulations. This session will address both enhancing pipeline communication between
stakeholders and provide specific tools for pipeline planning at the local level.
