The Mariner East 2 discussion goes on

We'll take a quick break from President Trump and Charlottesville to talk about the biggest economic story in the region.

Yes, on our editorial page today we are revisiting the great Mariner East 2 debate.

Last week's agreement between Sunoco Pipeline LP and environmental groups had a little something for everyone.

Residents got assurances of more safeguards and transparency connected to the drilling process. The company got the green light to resume work on the 350-mile span that cuts through wide swaths of western Delaware County and Chester County as it delivers as much as 350,000 barrels a day of ethane, propane and butane to Marcus Hook.

One thing the agreement did not resolve.

That would be the sense of unease and fear many residents have concerning this project.

More than 50 of them showed up at a meeting in Middletown to talk about it.

Don't expect the conversation to end anytime soon.
