[ 40 Groups Urge Gov. Wolf, DEP To Deny Permits For Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline ]

A coalition of 40 community organizations, farms, environmental organizations, and local businesses representing over 436,727 members and constituencies Monday delivered a coalition letter to Gov.

The Atlantic Sunrise pipeline must obtain Chapter 102 and 105 permits from the DEP for wetland and waterway crossings and earth disturbances.
