Portage County holding public meeting on Sunoco pipeline

By Bob Downing Published: January 13, 2014

Pipeline construction and safety is the topic of a hearing by the Portage County commissioners on Thursday, Jan. 16.

The meeting will take place at 11:15 a.m. on the seventh floor of the Portage County Administration Building, 449 S. Meridian St.

The meeting will focus on the Sunoco Logistics pipeline carrying ethane across Portage County. It is transporting ethane from Houston, Pa., through the Akron area to Sarnia, Ontario.

In the Akron area, the pipeline crosses southern Portage County, runs from Mogadore to Hudson, then heads west through Summit and Medina counties. It measures 8 inches in diameter from the Canadian border to Hudson and 10 inches from Hudson to Vanport, Pa.

The project required the conversion, expansion and partial reversal of existing pipeline and received approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

Company officials are expected to attend.
