Public utility construction scheduled to begin at Raystown Lake Feb. 21

Published Feb. 21, 2017

RAYSTOWN LAKE, Pennsylvania — Construction activities will begin Feb. 21 at U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Raystown Lake, in conjunction with construction of the Sunoco Pennsylvania Pipeline Project.  Activities are scheduled to continue until May 2017. 

While impact to visitors of Raystown Lake during construction is expected to be minimal, construction activities may result in audible noise pollution. Seven Points Recreation Area will remain open to the public, and restrictions on construction or equipment operations will be dependent upon minimizing impacts to those recreating. A secondary and final construction phase will resume after Labor Day, once peak recreation season has concluded.

The Pennsylvania Pipeline will expand Sunoco’s existing pipeline systems, and is expected to transport up to 700,000 barrels of natural gas liquids per day.

The Corps remains committed to ensuring measures exist to minimize impacts both to the environment and to the authorized purposes for which Raystown Lake was constructed.
