Even in my normal pre-dawn, coma-like state, it got my attention. It looks like Sunoco is ready to fight back. Slowly but surely, community opposition to the pipeline plan is growing. Many of the easements needed to construct it, however, have already been granted. Community groups are now going to their local school boards and municipal governments are now going to their leaders asking serious questions about those deals. For their part, Sunoco Logistics maintains that residents' concerns are overblown, that the pipeline, which will carry these gases at high pressure across more than 11 miles of western Delaware County, are being constructed to the highest safety standards, and that maintenance is and safe operations of the pipeline is a top company concern. Residents are not that sure. There is even talk that some parents are considering asking Rose Tree Media School Board if they have considered moving kids out of Glenwood Elementary, off Pennell Road (Route 452) in Middletown. The Mariner East 2 pipeline will run a stone's throw from the school. Residents are starting to talk about worse-case scenarios and what might happen in the event of a spill or explosion. It's not a pretty picture. Company officials insist those dangers are being overstated. They are not, however, issuing any guarantees. A group of Delaware County residents called the Middletown Six went to court last week to challenge the easements given to Sunoco to construct the pipeline, which is already well under way in both Delaware and Chester counties. They are hinting a lawsuit could be in the works to stop construction. Now Sunoco is hitting the airwaves with an employee talking about his job, and how safety is his top concern. He's not the only one.
