Marie Cusick wrote at NPR's State Impact on September 19:

"The project has been met with considerable public push-back, especially in Lancaster County. Hundreds of people have pledged to engage in civil disobedience in an effort to block the project.A Williams spokesman says some preliminary work is beginning in the Lancaster area, but most of it will get underway in mid-to-late October.

'We are always disappointed when the regulatory agencies give another approval or permit for the industry to violate the rights of the people,' says Malinda Clatterbuck of the protest group, Lancaster Against Pipelines. 'That is how we see this decision, as an outright violation of our communities’ constitutional rights to clean air and clean water, and a healthy and sustainable future.'”
