CHESTER SPRINGS, Pa. (AP) — State environmental authorities have ordered Sunoco to reroute a portion of its Marine East 2 natural gas liquids pipeline in southeastern Pennsylvania following last month’s spill of more than 8,000 gallons of drilling fluid into a wetland area. The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection halted drilling stopped after the Aug. 10 spill into wetlands and a tributary of Marsh Creek Lake in Chester County. About 33 acres of the 535-acre lake, located in a state park, were placed off limits to boating and fishing during cleanup. Lisa Coleman, a spokeswoman for Energy Transfer, which owns Sunoco, said the company would work closely with the department.
