Kate Gonick, In-House Counsel and Director of Land Protection for the Lancaster County Conservancy was recently appointed to the Pipeline Infrastructure Task Force (PITF) for the Historical, Cultural, and Tribal Workgroup by John Quigley, Secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection.
The PITF will be informed by 12 Workgroups. The Historical, Cultural, Tribal Workgroup is tasked with developing best practices related to protection of historic and cultural resources and identifying ways to maximize tribal involvement in pipeline infrastructure development.
In the next decade, Pennsylvania will be facing substantial pipeline infrastructure changes to facilitate transport of natural gas throughout the state. The Pipeline Infrastructure Task Force is charged with defining a series of best practices and recommendations and will present a final report to Governor Tom Wolf by February 2016.
Information developed by the Workgroup will be reported to the Task Force for additional discussion, consideration, and assimilation into the final report to the Governor.
