Falcon Pipeline Public Hearing (Ohio)

Event-Date: 
Wednesday, May 23, 2018 - 6:00pm

The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency will hold one public meeting for the Falcon pipeline water permit. The pipeline will cross through Jefferson, Harrison and Carroll counties in Ohio.

There are 240 groundwater wells within 1/4 mile of the pipeline.

The Falcon pipeline would cross through 25 municipalities in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia, in some cases through residential neighborhoods. Should a leak occur, ethane is not easily detected because it is a colorless and odorless gas. Slightly heavier than air and extremely flammable, triggers such as ignition of a car engine, cell phones, doorbells, or light switches can provide an effective ignition source if concentrations are high enough.

Help protect the Ohio River by attending this meeting.
