$1.7 Million Valley Energy Gas Pipeline Expansion Plan Approved

The plan to construct a natural gas pipeline expansion across and under the Susquehanna River in Bradford County by Valley Energy Inc., got approved by The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission.

Approximately 18,000 feet of distribution mains will be construct by the company, which will enable service for residents and businesses in the East Athens area.

The Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development’s Pipeline Investment Program (PIPE) awarded $850,000 for the project.

“I would like to take this opportunity to commend Valley for its practical commitment to extending natural gas service,” PUC Chair Gladys Brown Dutrieuille said.
