We are in need of DASD community members (you don’t need to have a child in school!) and parents to speak during the public comment period of this month’s meeting.
Our ask is simple- we want the board to uphold their duty to the safety and wellbeing of our students and file a formal complaint before the PA Public Utility Commission on grounds of the substantial safety risk that is being forced upon our students and staff at Shamona Creek Elementary School and the 6th Grade Center due to the proximity of the Mariner East block valve directly across the street. Data shows us that these valves are an ‘unacceptable risk’ in densely populated areas by industry standards, and our board needs to know that it’s unacceptable to our community to allow Sunoco to impose this burden on our kids.
Strongly worded letters to the governor and the PUC have fallen on deaf ears- it’s time to take direct action by filing a formal complaint. Neighboring districts are also escalating their concerns to the PUC and we’d like to initiate a conversation between all the affected districts in the path of this destructive project.
This is the first step.
If you are able to attend and speak to the board, PLEASE let us know to expect you. For assistance with talking points or more information, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
