DEP to Hold Public Briefing on Compressor Station Explosion

The PA Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) announced earlier today that it will hold a public briefing to "discuss the circumstances surrounding the Lathrop compressor station explosion that occurred March 29 in Springville Township, Susquehanna County." 

That meeting will be on Tuesday April 17 from 6-8pm at Montrose High School, 75 Meteor Way, in Montrose - the time originally scheduled for a public hearing on four other proposed compressor stations. Representatives from DEP and Williams Partners, LLC, the owners of Lathrop, will be on hand at the briefing.

“This is an opportunity for DEP and Williams to answer questions people in our community have,” said DEP Northeast Regional Director Mike Bedrin. He notes that there has been a "significant amount of interest" in the event. 

As for the public hearing originally scheduled to discuss air quality permits for the four proposed compressor stations in Susquehanna County - that meeting and hearing has been re-scheduled for Thursday April 26 at 6 pm in Elk Lake High School, 2380 Elk Lake School Road in Springville.
