Mariner East 2 pipeline project had hundreds of spills since construction began last year.

Since February 2017, a feat of audacious engineering has been unfolding across southern Pennsylvania. The Mariner East 2 pipeline, spanning 303 miles, crossing 570 wetlands and more than 1,200 streams the largest project that state environmental regulators have ever dealt with has put the Department of Environmental Protection in the crosshairs of what, from the sidelines, can feel like a moral judgment.

Among the 29,000 public comments that DEP reviewed were calls by citizens to reject the permits outright because the pipeline would contribute to climate change; because they thought it unfair that a private company can claim land by eminent domain; because Energy Transfer Partners, which merged with Sunoco last year, is the same outfit that battled protesters at the Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota and had a record of violations in Pennsylvania.
