3D Flyover Video of PennEast Pipeline Route in vicinity of Chapman, PA MP 60 to 54

This is part 16 of the 3D flyover video series of the PennEast routes. In this installment, we look at the route in the vicinity of Chapman, PA between mileposts 60 and 54.

As always, the 400′ survey corridor is in smokey gray, the pipeline 50′ permanent easement line is in red, and the light blue areas are temporary construction zones. There is also a 100′ construction right of way not shown here.

 I have also begun organizing these videos, they are all available under the “3D Flyover Videos” top navigation area.

This portion of the route starts with a very unfortunate side-slope along the western end of a golf course.  This one runs for a half a mile . These side slope construction routes are killers for their potential for massive rain runoff, erosion, and downstream impacts.  The video flyover does not quite do it justice, I have an alternative viewpoint shown below:

As you can see a large number of trees would be clear cut on this steep side slope.

The rest of the route hits mostly a number of farms, a clear case of targeting agriculture to lower PennEast’s land acquisition and construction costs.
