Uwchlan Township/Sunoco 24 hour Permit Waivers
This petition had 260 supporters
Uwchlan Township Supervisors, Uwchlan Township Manager, Rep. Becky Corbin, Senator John C. Rafferty,
Since the start of construction, Sunoco has been disruptive to residents physical, mental, and social well being thus far in Uwchlan Township. Now it has come to our attention that Sunoco will be filing for a noise ordinance variance allowing for work, including noise and lights, to continue 24 hours a day during the pipe pull back process. The people of Uwchlan respectfully ask that you intervene on behalf of the home owners near the construction activities. Per the Pipeline Planning Commission Notification Protocols, we request all homeowners within 1000 feet of the pipeline drill entrance and exits should be provided relocation or compensation based on the individual needs of the homeowners during the HDD process.
Sunoco representatives might suggest that these needs should have been negotiated, 1 on 1, during the settlement phase of each homeowners easement agreement. However, it is the feeling of homeowners that none of us are experts in this process. The fact that we are experiencing such levels of sound and vibration is in fact harmful to our health, safety, and welfare. We contend that the land agents were not forthright in their explanation of the process or levels to which residents would experience the harmful and excessive sound and vibration. Many of us were told that we wouldn't even know construction was going on.
Since the 24 hour process is in direct opposition to the very laws our sound ordinance is intended to protect from, we ask that you further allow for an open comment period prior to these variances being issued. It should include ample time for residents to plan to attend a public meeting on the topic of work extension permits and a certified letter to all homeowners within 1000 feet of the 24 hour work sites to ensure homeowner awareness of said meeting.
As elected officials, we count on you to protect the health, welfare, and safety of the residents here in Uwchlan.
