Hearing on compressor station

July 30, 2014

MILFORD, PA — The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will hold a public hearing on August 18 to discuss the Air Quality Plan Approval application submitted by Columbia Gas Transmission, LLC to modify its existing natural gas compressor station in Milford.

The company is proposing to replace two existing engine-driven compressors with new turbine-driven compressors.

The hearing will be held at Delaware Valley High School, 256 Rte. 6, Milford, from 6 to 9 p.m. Representatives from Columbia Gas will also be in attendance.

“This public meeting is an opportunity for DEP staff and Columbia Gas representatives to listen to any concerns or issues residents have with the proposed changes,” DEP Northeast Regional Director Mike Bedrin said.

Residents who are unable to attend the meeting are encouraged to participate in the department’s public comment process. Public comments must be received by 4 p.m. on August 29, and can be mailed to Mark Wejkszner, Air Quality Program Manager, 2 Public Square, Wilkes-Barre, PA 18701.
