The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette PowerSource reports that the proposed Marcellus Shale gas compressor station in Beaver County, Pennsylvania has been approved, despite pleas from area residents.
The vote for the gas compressor station was unanimous. The gas compressor station will transport natural gas from many wells through pipelines.
It will be located near the Kretschmann Family Organic Farm in New Sewickley. The farm’s owners have major concerns about the station’s effects, including air quality and environmental impact. The farm provides fresh organic produce to 1,000 customers.
