DragonPipe Diary – an anti-pipeline Pennsylvania blogger writing about the Mariner East project – recently wrote a post taking great liberty of pipeline and legal knowledge to make the case that the Mariner East 1 pipeline has falsely used ‘public utility status’ for eminent domain claims.

These projects have been rigorously reviewed under federal and state standards.
