Protests and Pipeline Construction Will Proceed in Susquehanna County
Saturday, February 20, 2016 11:04 PM EST
By Fox 40 News Staff.
Protesters against the construction of a natural gas pipeline in northeastern Pennsylvania won't be going away anytime soon.
On Friday, a federal judge dismissed charges of contempt brought against them by gas companies building the 124 mile pipeline in Susquehanna County.
US District Judge Malachy E. Mannion upheld the order allowing Construction Pipeline Co.'s to take property under eminent domain and said anyone who got in the way of construction would be arrested.
Protesters must stay within 150 feet from project.
Texas-based Williams Companies joined with Cabot Oil & Gas Corp to build a pipeline that would transport natural gas from Susquehanna County to New York and New England.
