The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will hold a public hearing on Monday, Aug.18, to discuss the Air Quality Plan Approval application submitted by Columbia Gas Transmission, LLC to modify their existing natural gas compressor station in Milford, Pike County.
The company is proposing to replace two existing engine-driven compressors with new turbine-driven compressors.
The hearing will be held at Delaware Valley High School, 256 U.S. Route 6, Milford 18337 from 6-9 p.m. Representatives from Columbia Gas will also be in attendance.
“This public meeting is an opportunity for DEP staff and Columbia Gas representatives to listen to any concerns or issues residents have with the proposed changes,” DEP Northeast Regional Director Mike Bedrin said.
In addition to its publication in the Pocono Record and Pike County Dispatch beginning July 22, a public notice of this meeting is scheduled to appear in the Pennsylvania Bulletin on July 26.
Residents who are unable to attend the meeting are encouraged to participate in the department’s public comment process. Public comments on the Plan Approval must be received by 4 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 29, and can be mailed to Mark Wejkszner, Air Quality Program Manager, 2 Public Square, Wilkes-Barre 18701.
