The Army Corps of Engineers Pittsburgh Office has preliminarily approved construction of a buried, 8.1 mile long natural gas pipeline in the vicinity of Crooked Creek Lake, Armstrong County.
The 12-inch diameter pipeline would be built by EQT Gathering, LLC to transport natural gas to market and link to an existing transmission pipeline east of Crooked Creek Lake. The 350-acre lake is located approximately 30 miles northeast of Pittsburgh and is one of 16 flood control impoundments built and maintained by the corps.
The orps draft decision found the proposed project would not significantly affect the human environment and therefore preparation of an environmental impact statement is not warranted.
The draft decision is open for public review and comment for 30 days.
