"On April 1, the Mariner East 1 pipeline, which runs parallel to the proposed path of ME2, spilled 20 barrels of ethane and propane near Morgantown, Pennsylvania. On the day of the incident, an email provided to The Intercept by a TigerSwan contractor shows the firm was watching social media for signs the spill would become a rallying point for pipeline opponents."
It didn't become a rallying point, because we didn't know. We didn't find out for weeks. The leak occurred in PAD7; Pat Meehan was informed of the spill and asked to address the reporting mechanism of these events.
