Lancaster Against Pipelines was founded in 2014 by a group of Lancaster County residents who were unwilling to believe Williams corporation's insistence that the Atlantic Sunrise pipeline would benefit their community. Citing water, soil and air quality, scientific evidence of the dangers of pipelines to the environment, frequent gas leaks and explosions, and the sputtering, unregulated and desperate fossil fuel industry, LAP determined to gather together Lancaster county residents to create a community Williams could not bully, coerce, violate or defy.
The Lancaster Stand is an encampment built by LAP and hosted on a private farm along the banks of the Conestoga River in southern Lancaster County, PA. It has been formed in opposition to the construction of the Atlantic Sunrise pipeline. Until construction begins, we especially welcome visitors and campers on the weekends.
The Prayer Arbor is a sacred site on the property of the Adorers of the Blood of Christ, a Catholic order of women religious who consider the Atlantic Sunrise pipeline a direct violation of their rights and their beliefs. The Prayer Arbor stands in a cornfield in Columbia and will become a site of constant vigil should construction of the ASP begin.
