HTCAPP/Hopewell Township Citizens Against the PennEast Pipeline, feels that the stance taken by Mercer County in their Dec 23 comments to FERC regarding the proposed PennEast Pipeline does not protect Mercer County and Hopewell Valley from this unnecessary project and (HTCAPP) will continue to fight this pipeline along any and every proposed route through Mercer County and Hopewell Valley as any proposed co-location route continues to endanger the residents and environment of this county/township.
