As reported in the Scranton Times:

PLAINS TWP. — When Charles Adonizio got a phone call at his Westminster Road home Aug. 1 from someone wanting to survey his land, he was perplexed.

“I said no. I didn’t even know what he was talking about,” he said.

When Mr. Adonizio read in the news about pipelines coming through Luzerne County to transport natural gas from the bountiful Marcellus Shale wells in the northern part of Pennsylvania, he never thought he’d have one in his backyard.

But then he got the packet of papers from PennEast Pipeline Co. LLC: Part of its $1 billion, 113.8-mile, 36-inch-diameter Pennsylvania-to-New Jersey pipeline is being rerouted through Plains Twp. — and his property is right in the intended path.
