Pipeline Notification Protocol (PNP)

Chester County has implemented a "Pipeline Notification Protocol" or "PNP" to inform residents and other constituents about pipeline projects in the County. Providing information through the PNP will allow us to update municipalities, residents, and other agencies on pipeline activities in a consistent and timely manner. Coordination with all involved parties, including pipeline operators, federal and state agencies, county departments, and municipalities, is key to the successful implementation of the protocol. To ensure the most current information is included on the PNP, we request that the CCPC point-of-contact be included on any correspondence or other updates on current pipeline activity or maintenance projects in Chester County so that we can maintain the most up-to-date information on the Pipeline Information Center website.

View contact information for the PNP.
