"Joseph, along with other residents in Chester County Pennsylvania, is working to stop the proposed pipeline expansion project by Williams/Transcontinental Corporation. The pipeline itself, which currently runs through Joseph's front yard as it has for the last 60 years, is not the cause of Joseph's opposition. It is the expansion, which could endanger the County's natural resources including 24 waterways, and 6 potable surface water intakes that worry him. The project would also represent the removal of 600 trees in the immediate vicinity of his property. Joseph added that one needs only Google 'Pipeline Explosions' to warrant even further concern."
