Residents voiced concerns about the proposed path, the lack of jobs this pipeline would bring to Lancaster, and about the power of eminent domain.  One landowner stated the pipeline was going to go directly through her home.

Another worried about the Conestoga fire company’s ability to adequately respond to a spill or explosion.
