http://www.gdacoalition.org WILKES-BARRE - Testimony on the application of UGI Energy Services, Inc. for zoning approval to build a natural gas compressor station in West Wyoming concluded at just before 1 a.m. Wednesday, following more than five hours of testimony. Citing the need for time to review and consider the volume of evidence presented, the board did not issue a decision Wednesday morning.
UGI is seeking to build a compressor station in an A1 Agricultural District off Fire Cut Road to pressurize gas entering the Transco interstate pipeline and into the distribution network of UGI's public utility arm. It needs special exception approval for the station and a variance for a 100-foot communications tower to transmit data to the Transco pipeline.
Some testimony presented after the press deadline very specifically questioned whether the compressor could be allowed in an agricultural zone under the Luzerne County Zoning Ordinance.
