In their continuing commitment to using prudent design, construction, operation and maintenance practices to operate a safe pipeline system, Texas Eastern has made the Township aware maintenance and survey activities in existing rights-of-way (easement area) will be occurring now through the end of December 2018. This activity is called a Close Internal Survey or CIS.
Survey consists of 3-4 technicians walking the right-of-way with electronic equipment in order to locate and obtain technical data relative to the pipeline. Some testing will require the use of small gauge wire that will trail behind the crew as they progress with testing. This wire will be retrieved at the end of the work day. In some cases representatives may perform limited excavation which could involve digging or probing. Regular mowing of the right-of-way will be done to facilitate the CIS.
Any concerns can be directed to their Bechtelsville office 484-328-5530.
Spectra Energy and Enbridge merged in February of 2017. In Bucks County they are still referred to as Texas Eastern Transmission LP.
