Gas compressor station could impact Pennsylvania farm

Tractor working in field

The Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports that a compressor station used for transporting natural gas through pipelines may potentially be placed in the way of a Beaver County, Pa.’s organic farm.

Don and Becky Kretschmann, the owners of the farm, fear that if the compressor is installed, the traffic from trucks transporting water and gas could cause air pollution, thus threatening their farm, their produce and the community that the farm feeds.

A hearing was held on July 23, and although there were many residents in attendance who oppose the compressor station, many believe that it could bring economic good to the area.
