The Shell Falcon Pipeline and Protecting Your Water
Will the Shell Falcon Pipeline Will Put Your Water At Risk?
To prepare for the Department of Environmental Protection public hearing, Citizens to Protect the Ambridge Reservoir (CPAR) will hold an education forum on what you can do to protect your water and public health. Citizens are encouraged to attend.
Shell Pipeline Company recently applied to the Dept. of Environmental Protection (DEP) to build a 97-mile Falcon pipeline to feed the Shell Petrochemical Plant. This pipeline will run through 22 townships including Beaver County. Should the pipeline leak or explode at any point, multiple areas within 1,000 feet of the pipeline will be at risk, including private water wells and the Ambridge Reservoir. It will also come dangerously close to 550 family homes, 20 businesses, 5 schools and 6 daycare centers, 12 public parks, major hiking and biking trails and the Independence Marsh.
