Prior Alternative 1 (originally filed as “Original Route” in draft Resource Report 10)

Shown in red, the “Original Route,” was designed to bring locally produced Marcellus Shale from UGI’s Compressor A in northeastern Pennsylvania, through 29 municipalities, to its Transco Trenton-Woodbury interconnect in Mercer County, New Jersey, allowing it to serve customers in metropolitan east coast markets. PennEast considered multiple factors when evaluating potential alignments. The Original Route was aligned to avoid standing structures, densely populated areas and planned development projects thereby minimizing the potential cumulative impacts of the pipeline.
